I was debating between a 3 and a 4 for this one, but I went with a 3 because I don't really care for endings without resolution. Other than that though, I definitely enjoyed the story. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Although I like zombie books/movies/etc., the real reason I wanted to read this book was because Courtney Summers is an amazing writer and I knew I wanted her take on the genre. I was not disappointed! Yes, this is about zombies, but it's about much more. It is gritty and real and everything that I've come to expect from Summers, and with zombies thrown into the mix, well...bonus points! ( )

I didn’t know what to expect when I heard contemporary author Courtney Summers had a zombie novel coming out. I was also wondering how another zombie novel would fare under my almost-over-the-undead gaze. I opened the book with a jaded little cloud of judgement, and I was floored by the contents.
This Is Not a Test is not your typical zombie novel. If I had to explain it quickly in few words ore less I would say: The Breakfast Club meets Degrassi with zombies. I know what you’re thinking. Something along the lines of WTF, Pam. WTF indeed.
