Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Hosted by Breaking The Spine 

Sick by Tom Leveen

Publication date: 1st October 2013
Sick
Breakfast Club meets The Walking Dead as a group of unlikely allies tries to survive a deadly outbreak.
Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They’re the misfits and the troublemakers—the ones who jump their high school’s fence to skip class regularly. So when a deadly virus breaks out, they’re the only ones with a chance of surviving.
The virus turns Brian’s classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don’t die easily. The whole school goes on lockdown, but Brian and his best friend, Chad, are safe (and stuck) in the theater department—far from Brian’s sister, Kenzie, and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids Brian had never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won’t be easy, and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates.

Why I'm Waiting?

I haven't read a zombie book in so long, and how can I resist one that is advertised as a cross between The Breakfast Club and The Walking Dead?! Hopefully this will be done well and not turn out cringey!

  2. Sounds a little like High Shool of the Dead to me. I hope you enjoy.

  3. I like it! Books like this are always hard because it seems they're either a total success or a total flop, and you never know which until you've spent time/money to read it!
    I'm hoping this one is a success because I have a lot of students who LOVE zombies. Students *as* zombies? They'll eat it up (no pun intended lol).

    1. Definitely know what you mean, it's so disappointing when they're awful, and they can be really, really awful! And same with my students, they're begging for new zombie books but they're a tough crowd to please! Hopefully this will be the one for them :)

  10. This does sound interesting. The line of Breakfast Club/Walking Dead is pretty convincing. I usually shy away from zombie books, but I'll keep my eye out for this one. Great pick!
