Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Review: Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Generation Dead (Generation Dead, #1) Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

My rating:

All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occuring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. Termed "living impaired" or "differently biotic," they are doing their best to fit into a society that doesn't want them.

Fitting in is hard enough when you don't have the look or attitude, but when almost everyone else is alive and you're not, it's close to impossible. The kids at Oakdale High don't want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn't breathing. And there are no laws to protect the differently biotic from the people who want them to disappear - for good.

With her pale skin and goth wardrobe, Phoebe has never run with the popular crowd. But on one can believe it when she falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids. Not her best friend, Margi, whose fear of the differently biotic is deeply rooted in guilt over the past. And especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Recently, Adam has realized that his feelings for Phoebe run much deeper than just friendship. He would do anything for her; but what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?

My thoughts:

Generation Dead is an amazing new addition to the YA genre.
I was instantly hooked. I love that it has action but is well paced. The storyline and the zombie history is very interesting. You learn a whole new way of zombies and their story behind the 'living impaired'(a.k.a zombies). The word "Zombie" is what the 'living impared' teenagers would rather be called. (But only by those who mean no harm in the word.)

The characters are easy to get attached too, Daniel Waters really grasped teenagers(male and female). I like Phoebe and Adams humor towards each other and how they can trust each other with stuff that they don't trust anyone else with. Phoebe and Tommy are also good together, because they truly want a friendship even though it's looked upon strangely. It's an interesting romance, that's for sure, and I cannot wait to see how all the relationships grow in the second in the installment.

If your a zombie fan, you may not like this book, not because it's poorly written, because that isn't the case. It's just not a typical 'brain eating zombie' book. It's a new age version of zombies, and although I'm more of 'brain eating zombie' fan, I also like this way. All zombies rule! So check this YA zombie romance tale, you won't regret it!
