CAN YOU SURVIVE THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? is not a book for kids or young teens, but it bring me back to the magic of that first time in 3rd grade. The premise is that you are a 20 something slacker at a job in NYC when a zombie virus breaks out and takes over Manhattan. The choices you make will determine whether you survive - or not. There is only one THE END (which I found on my second try) but there are many AN ENDs, some where you survive, most where you die in some gruesome fashion.
You might find yourself rolling with the Hell's Angels, shooting at Zombies from the observation deck of the Statue of Liberty, running through the tunnels of the NYC subway, smoking pot with a neighbor, or attending a conference where you can't determine the real zombies from the zombie fans made up just to look like zombies. It's a fun ride written in a breezy, irreverent style.
CAN YOU SURVIVE THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE? comes out February 8th. Find out more about it at the author's website.
I'm giving it four Zombie Chickens!
