#PBwkendread Zom-B by Darren Shan
This weekend read is Zom-B by Darren Shan.
When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke-- but even if it isn't, he figures, it's ok to lose a few Irish.So I saw this book in my public library read the back of the book and was like you know what it sounds awesome. Here is what it says: "I spot the first of them coming. A boy I don't recognize. His sweater and shirt are ripped. His stomach has been carved open. Guts drip from holes as he lurches forward. His eyes are unfocused, his lips caked with blood." That right there has me wanting to grab this story and read it, I just hope it is as good as it sounds, especially since I love zombie stories. So what are you reading this weekend?
B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.
That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.
