Can zombie books keep you alive?
When the Zombie Apocalypse came to Liam’s neighborhood, it came with horsemen’s trumpets. Tornado sirens wailed for an hour, as if to ensure everyone knew there was no going back.
Unfortunately, Liam was a fifteen-year-old boy condemned by bad decisions to spend the summer in the city with his 104-year-old religious great grandmother. When Grandma Marty tries to send him on his way to save himself, something deep inside awakens—he chafes at the thought of leaving her to die, and instead sees himself as a hero from one of his zombie books who can accomplish the impossible: rescue her.
As they step out her front door together to face a city filled with scared refugees, desperate law enforcement, a zombie-hunting military, and opportunist criminals and looters, Liam realizes he tied his fate to a woman who can’t walk more than ten feet without his help.
When the zombies begin to overshadow all their other problems, Liam comes to appreciate why there are no atheists in foxholes.
