When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B’s racist father thinks it’s a joke—but even if it isn’t, he figures, it’s okay to lose a few Micks. B doesn’t fully buy into Dad’s racism but figures it’s easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn’t work, B doesn’t hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks. That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A clever mix of horror, fantasy, and realism…The book is a carefully crafted attack on those who pull the strings to incite hatred.” Telegraph (London)
“Character development is impressive…and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully.” Publishers Weekly
“Horror with a social conscience…This compelling page-turner builds steadily to the climax then throws the reader off the cliff with a twist that is impossible to see coming.” VOYA
“Horror fans no doubt will eat up Shan’s latest, like some warm, sweet brains from a freshly cracked skull. Yum.” Children’s Literature
“A raw and deeply observant tale of a morally questionable kid trying, and usually failing, to move beyond the ingrained racism instilled by B’s father. It is a brave move by Shan to posit such a bigoted hooligan as our protagonist.” Booklist
“Shan packs in the bites, and he rips out enough entrails for even the most jaded zombie fan; the cliffhanger ending…closes on just the right note to leave the audience gnawing for more…A series opener to sink your teeth into.” Kirkus Reviews
