It's Teen Tech Week (Mar. 10-16)! Come celebrate with us! Today we are hosting Battle Search Engine--a competitive, game-style program that will be SO MUCH FUN! Join us from 4:30-6PM!
Alice has never been outside of her house at night, mostly because her dad is crazy. For Alice that means no sleepovers, no movies at night with friends, no going out on dates. Dad locks up the entire family up in heir home their every night to protect them from prowling zombies. Alice doesn’t know any other high school student that has to deal with such a strange family.
One night, Alice convinces her parents to take the family to her sister Emma’s dance recital. Everything goes well until they’re driving home. It only takes a moment and the car crashes. They’re right in front of a graveyard. Alice is the only survivor, and she’s sure zombies were the cause.
Alice, guilt-ridden and completely depressed, must start over again. She moves into her grandparents’ house and attends a new school. She immediately bonds with bold, spunky Kat and has a strange/freaky connection with Cole, a handsome mysterious guy with a tough-as-nails reputation. It turns out that both Kat and Cole have some secrets and both are deadlier that Alice ever could have expected. And the zombies are still waiting for Alice…
If you like paranormal romance that’s heavy on the romance side, give this first-in-a-series a try. If you’re a hardcore zombie fan, I’ve got some great suggestions for you but this isn’t one of them. The zombie mythology in this book doesn’t make a whole lot of sense and frankly, this reader was really disappointed in that aspect of the book. It’s a more mature read for Twilight fans.

Shreve has most of the inmates at Casimir Pulaski Juvenile Detention Center figured out. He’s frequently tripped up by his smart mouth, but is very competent candy pusher. He knows which kids like Snickers and which kids like Skittles and somehow his supply is very generous. Except one day a new inmate arrives—a new cell mate for Shreve. Jack is quiet, extremely shy and reveals little about himself. Then Shreve notices his hands. Jack has six fingers on each hand. Ooohhh and Shreve wants to know all about it, but Jack gets upset and something strange happens. Jack goes all explody on Shreve.
Shreve’s roommate is something special. Shreve isn’t the only person interested in finding out more. A man named Quincrux shows up at Casimir to visit Jack claiming to be from the Department of Health and Human Services. Except there’s something strange about him, too. Quincrux tries to penetrate Shreve’s mind with his own. He can control other people’s thoughts and actions. Something is quite wrong. Shreve is determined to protect his new buddy, no matter what trouble it brings.
This book was so much fun to read—explosions, fight scenes, mystery, special powers and candy (lots and lots of candy). Grab your favorite chocolate bar and dig into this one!
