"The story of Melanie and the people around her is so thoughtfully crafted, so heartfelt, remorseless and painfully human, that it takes the potentially tired trope of the zombie apocalypse and makes it as fresh as it is terrifying. The story spirals towards a conclusion so surprising, so warm and yet so chilling, that it takes a moment to realize it's been earned since the first page, and even before. It left me sighing with envious joy, like I'd been simultaneously offered flowers and beaten at chess. A jewel." "Joss Whedon"" "Original, thrilling and powerful." ""The Guardian""" "Unique and terrifying." ""Booklist""" "An instant favorite."

A jewel."--Joss Whedon "A great read that takes hold of you and doesn't let go."--John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN "An instant favorite."--Boing Boing "Unique and terrifying."--Booklist "Original, thrilling and powerful."--The Guardian "An instant favorite."
