The Last Kids on Earth by Max Brallier

I ordered this on impulse when it popped up as recommended on Amazon. The first chapter, I wasn't quite sure, but by chapter two, I was enjoying it. By chapter five, I was loving it! It is all the things I liked about Patterson's Middle School series, but with zombies! The illustrations are great and really add a lot to the story. (Like the Wimpy Kid books, you need to read the illustrations as part of the story.)

I liked the characters and how their strengths and weaknesses complement each other. I am always a sucker for stron female characters, so I liked that. And surprisingly, because I am someone who likes things to make sense, I liked the fact that ther is really no explanation for why all these zombies and monsters appered. They are just there, like the weather, and I kind of like that.

This is just a fun book!
