I received this as a gift and had never heard of it before but I was hooked from the start. The story follows the character of Melanie, a young girl who has classes most days and loves to learn. The difference is that she is strapped to a chair and locked in a cell when she isn’t in class. Melanie is a zombie and studying her and a group of similar children is the only hope of finding a cure.
It is a brilliant read; really thought provoking. I really felt for Melanie, she is just a little girl who loves to learn and doesn’t understand, at first, why people are so afraid of her. I don’t want to spoil it but she turns out to be the strongest character in the book. You won’t be able to put this down. I couldn’t. Give it a try.
