I really liked this story and the characters were very believable. I think the only thing that I can say about this book was that the story dragged a little in the beginning and the fact that Leah buried herself within her mind for weeks on end wasn't enjoyable to read. Overall I enjoyed the action in the later part of the book.
When it became more of a survival/adventure, it became trite. I found that I knew exactly what would happen each step of the way.
And the ending? It's been done before and is one of my least favorite ways for this type of book to end.
This is the first in a series. I'm afraid I have no interest in continuing.

Leah finds a video online & sends it her crush, Jake, as a prank. Unfortunately, she is such a ditz that she accidentally sends it to her boss. Then, all breasbreasks loose as the world becomes convinced that the AM13 outbreak is real.
The last few chapters of the book are like watching a horror movie; you know what's coming, but you can't look away! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Woa, what a seriously cool storyline this book had; it was so different! I loved the idea and story so much, but the main female, Leah, was quite annoying which is probably kept me from giving the book 5 stars… I really was not a fan of hers. However, I did like how the heroine was not your typical bada** you see in most of these books. She was a regular girl. The book began with the pre-zombie apocalypse which was awesome, so you got a bit of an insight into the world before it all came crashing down.
Leah's co-worker Jake (who she was crushing on majorly) always sent around joke e-mails, so she thought it would be funny to send him one back…about a zombie virus. But she accidentally included her boss in the e-mail. Certain she was about to be fired, she was shocked to the core when her boss took the story seriously and began broadcasting it all over their news station. She was sure she was going to be the laughing stock of….well…everyone when her name was brought into it as the girl that discovered the video about the AM13 virus. But then the government announces there is going to be a mandatory lockdown, to rid the streets of anyone infected with the virus. Sounds like a good plan to contain things quickly….right? WRONG! Things begin quickly spiraling out of control. Many do not take it serious at first, and even Leah is not believing there is any truth to this story. Until her and her co-workers witness first hand the virus in action.
When Leah, her best friend Michelle, and Jake decide to break out from the lockdown, no one was prepared for what they would be faced with on the outside.
The entire book was not a lot of in your face zombie gore (although there def was some), and the beginning was a totally unique idea. The further you got into the book, the more the intensity picked up until you hit the end. THE END. Seriously, it was such a WTF moment that I did not expect. I want to rave on and on about the genius of having her POV the way the author did, but I can't without giving anything away. I was confused for a bit. Then I was just downright shocked and disgusted (in the best way possible). For me, the ending alone should be given 7 stars! I am so glad I was recommended this book. It def did not let me down.

Well, this was a very different zombie tale! It kind of had a chick-lit vibe to it, like a Bridget Jones's Zombie Diary.
