Grace Chalmers can talk to zombies. Now, if she could only make them listen!

Some girls talk to their BFFs. Some girls talk to their boyfriends. Grace Chalmers talks to zombies. They even talk back! Thanks to her newfound talent, Grace is the key to stopping a zombie outbreak before it gets any worse. And she only has to battle the US Army, a skeevy Congressman, a top-secret military organization, a horde of hungry zombies plus a brood of even hungrier zombie chimps. Good thing she’s a fast talker.

~My Thoughts~

I don't know why it took me so long to finally read this! I started reading the first five action packed chapters back in October but my life was just getting crazy so I wasn't reading much. I would try starting a book but wouldn't get very far, which is exactly what happened with this one. It wasn't because it couldn't hold my interest, no quite the opposite actually as I was hooked from the very beginning! 

You know before I started to read this I was expecting it to be a funny young adult novel (not saying it wasn't) where a young girl going to high school had the gift to talk to zombies and the usual light formula. But instead this was an action packed story about a girl being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Don't get me wrong, it was still fun and held my interest- it's just not what I was expecting.

I really enjoyed this! The writing kept me captive and the zombies were an interesting take, mainly because Grace could communicate with them. So the zombies felt a little more human, even though they craved brains haha. And the zombanzees, totally creepy! Though I fell for them at the end of the book. 

This book pretty much gives you both sides of the story, so get ready to fall in love with certain zombies. Overall I truly enjoyed this. It wasn't the least bit of what I was expecting, the story went a completely different way but I still had a blast nonetheless. Though because I wasn't expecting this I think some scenes I just became a little bored with but honestly at the end of it I was smiling from ear to ear. Even though this is a standalone I'm definitely curious on how things will turn out for Grace, Walt, and her zombie friends since their world fell apart because of the zombie apocalypse. And if you've enjoyed Mr. Fischer's work before I'm sure you'll enjoy this one too!
