Goodread's Bio: Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real….
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….
My Review: First, i knew going into this that this is NOT a retelling of Alice in Wonderland plus zombies!!! i read a lot of negative reviews where they mainly gave it 1/2 stars because they were misled. all i had to do was read the inside little bio and knew it wasn't anything related to Alice in Wonderland.
Top 3 Main Characters for me:
Alice: The whole story is told from Alice's POV. I love Alice. She speaks to me! She's sassy and has the best come backs. She's well written and i connected with her quickly.
Cole: Hulky heartthrob! i had a love/hate relationship with him the whole book. he's the leader of the zombie hunting group. everyone in school is afraid of him, every girl wants in his pants. yuck. i dislike characters written like that so i had a hard time liking him. But towards the end, he really opened up and i grew to like him.
Kat: i love Kat!!! i need her as my best friend in real like. she suffers though some bad stuff but is always looking on the bright side and is always there for Alice!
Plot: Alice's dad is crazy, claiming he sees monsters everywhere and doesn't let his family out after the sun goes down. On Alice's birthday, her sister Emma has a dance recital and Alice convinces her dad to let them go out after dark to see it. (view spoiler)
Alice begins to see the same monsters her dad saw and she learns there are others like her. She joins them and learns she's a pretty badbutt person compared to them :]
Overall:this book is badbutt! i loved every minute of it! i'm greatly looking forward to reading the next in the series :]
