This highly amusing story is suitable for younger readers because the zombies are dependent on electronics and not human brains!
A computer virus, unwittingly unleashed by Seb, ‘zombifies’ most of the town. Seb, his best mate, Darren, and Talia, The Prettiest Girl in School, are among the few left unaffected, so it’s up to them to find a cure. Seb thoughtfully takes on the added responsibility of his little sister, Ava, and Cody, the family dog. Seb demonstrates his caring nature, although his methods are somewhat unconventional, and hilarious.
Together the teenage trio face the challenge of looking after their zombie family members who are so engrossed in their devices, they are oblivious to what’s happening around them. There’s plenty of mayhem, antics, and unusual problem-solving as the teenagers seek answers.
Written through Seb’s point of view, the language is easy to follow, and includes lots of banter between the friends. There’s plenty of scenarios to interest tweens, like school with no teachers! A family-friendly story about screen addiction told in a non-judgemental fashion that will appeal to young readers and delight adults.
