The phenomenon that”s been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they”re calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation. Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie — her Homecoming date Tommy Williams — her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for her . Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can”t seem to live without.
This is book two in Daniel Waters Generation Dead series and it doesn’t disappoint. At the end of last novel, Phobe’s best-friend Adam took a bullet meant for either her or her undead friend Tommy and ended up undead himself. The trial for his killer, Pete, doesn’t end up like they wished it would have.
The undead’s still don’t have legal rights and the humans take advantage of the situation in anyway they can. Phobe has to decide if she is in love with Adam or just loves him as a friend, and if she is over Tommy. Tommy on the other hand, decides he must go to Washington to fight for undead rights.
There’s so much happening in this book that I want to talk about but won’t for fear of ruining it for any of you new to the series. It’s one of the better teen series out there right now, the writing doesn’t talk down and is okay for us over 25′s to understand and not be embarrased about reading. Go pick it up, after you read Generation Dead and thank me later! And be sure to check out Tommy’s blog at My So-Called Undeath.
