Teen Book Review – Elizabeth

Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Mabry

Genre: Teen Fantasy

“In the zombie infested world Benny has grown up in, teenagers must work once they turn fifteen-looking they’ll lose food rations.  Benny isn’t interested in taking on the family business, but he reluctantly agrees to train as a zombie killer with his boring big brother, Tom. He expects a dull job, whacking zombies for cash. What he discovers is a vocation that will teach him what it really means to be human.

As his worldview is challenged again and again by the lessons he learns from Tom, Benny is forced to confront another horrifying reality: Sometimes the most terrible mo stern are human.

Critically acclaimed author Jonathan Maberry crafts a terrifying future vision of a zombie apocalypse, brought to life through the rich emotional struggles of a teenager trying to find his place in a tumultuous new world.”

As the last paragraph said, terrifyingly emotion struggles this novel will cause you. If you choose to read this book (and trust me you will want to) I promise that you will end up pulling an all nighter. This is the first installment in the series.
