Book Review - Goosebumps Hall of Horrors #4: Why I Quit Zombie School
Welcome to the Hall of Horrors, HorrorLand's Hall of Fame for the truly terrifying.
Matt was never a superstar in school, but he's definitely the most energetic and quick-witted student here. But what's up with the others? His suspicions are finally confirmed when Franny, his new friend asks, "How long have you been dead?" To his horror, Matt realizes his parents have unknowingly enrolled him in a zombie school. When Matt overhears the zombie plans to march and claim the whole city for the undead, he has to make a frightening choice- protect himself and continue his charade-or reveal his aliveness and try to save the unsuspecting alive people in the town.

My Take on the Book
My daughter likes stories that are a bit scary, and this one definitely falls into this realm. This was a fun, fast read, and you are drawn into the story, wondering what will happen to the main character Matt who is fighting to stay among the living! The writing in the story was solid and the characters were fun. This book is a part of a larger series books and all of them thus far (that I have read) are great for the upper elementary, middle school child or really anyone who likes exciting and sometimes gruesome stories!
