Teen fiction; zombie fighting a little romance (between the living, not zoms!). A little slow to start for some tastes (all that world building), but this should do well with boys (even the reluctant ones) and girls alike. I'm glad to see that this is a series. ( )

I'm not a big zombie book reader, but this story has action, mystery and romance. It was reallly good! ( )

A more compassionate book on the zombie apocalypse. Benny is, at times, annoying and stubbornly obtuse but he comes around in the end. The plot and action were compelling enough to keep me reading and I finished most of the book in one day. ( )

Wow! Outstanding book - intricate and thoughtful and full of incredible world building details. Totally shed a tear at the end. Can't wait for the next in the series. One of the better YA novels I've read in a long time. ( )

One of the best post-apocalyptic novels I’ve read. It’s SO much more than zombies.....!
5 stars, and highly recommended ( )

This is no ordinary zombie novel. Maberry has given it a soul in the form of two brothers who captured my heart from the first page and refused to let go.

Book description
In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn't want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash, but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.
