Girl Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie Reviews
I will admit that I am not a fan of Zombies as they creep me out even on Halloween, but this book was a wonderful surprise as it is not about the gory of Zombies, rather it is the life struggle of a teenage girl dealing with being infected. This book was a delight to read and I found myself hating to put it down to resume my normal life. The story is very well written keeping you entertained what will happen next. The story brings humanity to those infected with the Z-disease, and shows the transition of a teenage girl as she deals not only with being infected, but her new way of life on top of all the typical teenager challenges, and the world in which she lives. The author has portrayed the teenager as strong young woman who is determined to overcome the setbacks with her infection, and be a survivor.While this book may appeal to the young adults as the main subject is a girl teenager, it is an easy read for adult without all the gory of the traditional Zombie graphics. Sure, the author has incorporated the more traditional Zombies in the story to make it realistic, but not to the point to distract the reader from the focus of the story: survival after being infected while navigating the challenges of a being a teenage girl.My congratulations to the author, Christine Verstraete, for a well-written, entertaining, compassionate story! Looking forward to the opportunity to read a sequel!
