Once Upon a Zombie

About the Book is reporting strange phenomena in cemeteries in Scotland, Germany, Italy, and America. Only one individual knows what's happening - and why! This person also knows the one girl who can prevent an unspeakable and imminent catastrophe from taking place. But will she? When Caitlin Fletcher's mom disappeared (or left?) four years ago, Caitlin began suffering from breathless bouts of anxiety. Her new move to London, with her Dad and her brainiac sister, threatens to lead to more situations that will trigger panic. Now, she's having anxiety over the possibility of having anxiety! Caitlin's life takes a turn for the bizarre when she's tricked into climbing down a "rabbit hole", landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe - except it's crawling with savage, starving blood-eyed zombies. But what's scarier - a blood thirsty zombie, a panic attack....or the painful truth?!

My Take on the Book
As I read though this book I found that I was turning page after page, the action was that intense. Yet, for me it was not the action that was the strongest attribute of the book itself, it was the characters and the content too. The characters in the book are truly unique, and while they have a connected teenage, fairy tale dynamic going on, it works and the characters just meld perfectly together. The book has action, plot twists (that you definitely do not see coming) and more that really keep you engaged from beginning to end. The book is unique and original and my daughter and I are really looking forward to seeing what will come next in the series!
