Synopsis for The Living Dead Boy
Josh Rondell is twelve years old and known as the “living dead boy” due to his rampant love of all things zombie. As the head of the Zombie Hunters Club, he’s obsessed with preparing for the zombocalypse. Though no one around him really believes that zombies will one day rise to devour the living, Josh is convinced it just might happen. When zombies do shamble into his schoolyard, Josh finds himself the leader of the dwindling band of zombie hunters, and he is charged with protecting them all. Josh’s baby brother, his closest friends, and the love of his young life try to survive as the undead take over their town. Trapped in his treehouse and surrounded by the dead, will Josh be able to save them all?
My Review for The Living Dead Boy
I have mentioned before that I am not a big fan of zombies, but I wanted to include it in the month of October. When I was looking for books, just the title got me hooked. I loved the fact that the heroes were kids. See it from their perspective, and witness their fear, and understand their way of thinking during a zombie apocalypse is great!
