Waiting On Wednesday (65) Sick by Tom Leveen

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine.
For this weeks Waiting On Wednesday I chose Sick by Tom Leveen.

Expected Publication:
October 1, 2013 by Amulet Books


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 Am I Waiting? 
Every once and awhile it is just nice taking a break from what I look at as "serious" zombie books.
This book sounds like it will just be a fun ride ooo like an American Shaun of the dead if it was set in High School lol. Also can we just take a moment to appreciate this awesome cover. I love how the zombies are black but their shadows are red.

  6. You sure love all your things zombie :P However, it does sound like it could fun as well as a little serious. I have to say I'd be looking forward to the panic attack problem most ^^

    1. Some people love contemporaries others love romance. My thing just happens to be Zombies. Next week however is not a Zombie pick since this fall has some pretty darn amazing books coming out that I'm really looking forward to.
