THE ZOMBIE CHASERS by John Kloepfer
CHILDREN'S
Released: July 1, 2010

Except for an overly quiet neighborhood, all seems normal to Zack Clarke. He spent the afternoon polishing the middle school's floor in detention. He's returning home to one of his evil older sister Zoe's slumber parties. When he gets there, she and her evil-er friends kidnap him and give him a hostage makeover while videotaping it for YouTube. Then the zombies attack! Zack, his best friend, chubby, geeky Rice, and vegan Madison (one of his sister's friends) are the only survivors, and they must try to make it to the Tucson Air Force Base. Easier said than done in a town full of fast-food-created, shambling, hungry undead. Rice thinks he has the cure, but they have to survive the trip…with zombified Zoe, a yappy puppy and lunk-headed Greg (Madison's boyfriend) in tow. Kloepfer's first is a Zombieland for the middle-school set: funny, off-color and extremely gross. Wolfhard's cartoon line drawings might inspire nightmares, so this and the obviously on-the-way sequel are not for the squeamish. A great pick for the child who thought Diary of a Wimpy Kid just needed more motile corpses. (Funny horror. 8-12)Read full book review >
