Two teenage zombies search for brains, love, and answers in this surprisingly romantic and laugh-out-loud funny debut novel with guts.
Jake Stephens was always an average, fly-under-the-radar guy. The kind of guy who would never catch the attention of an insanely popular girl like Amanda Blake-or a psychic teenage government agent like Cass. But one day during lunch, Jake’s whole life changed. He and Amanda suddenly locked eyes across the cafeteria, and at the exact same instant, they turned into zombies and devoured half their senior class.
Now Jake definitely has Amanda’s attention-as well as Cass’s, since she’s been sent on a top-secret mission to hunt them down. As Jake and Amanda deal with the existential guilt of eating their best friends, Cass struggles with a growing psychic dilemma of her own-one that will lead the three of them on an epic journey across the country and make them question what it means to truly be alive. Or undead.
Eat, Brains, Love is a heartwarming and bloody blend of romance, deadpan humor, and suspense that fans of Isaac Marion’s Warm Bodies will devour. With its irresistibly dry and authentic teen voice, as well as a zombie apocalypse worthy of AMC’s The Walking Dead, this irreverent paperback original will leave readers dying for the sequel that’s coming in Summer 2014.
Why am I waiting for this book? Well besides the fact that it has gummy worms on the front of it (and they are a total weakness of mine.) I LOVE LOVE LOVED Isaac Marion’s Warm Bodies as well as The Reformed Vampire Support Group ( by Catherine Jinks) and this book sounds like a fantastic combination of both. (With zombies instead of vamps…of course.) I thrive on deadpan humor and I have a feeling this book will be slammed packed with it. Now, if only I could find a way to get my hands on it early….Anyways, THIS is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
