Review:

"Though it starts out feeling like a lighthearted realistic fiction story, this graphic novel turns into a zombie story partway through. Nerdy Jack Chen and athletic Dicey Bell become more than friends when their high school gives them a parenting assignment to watch over an egg as if it's their baby. The two continue to draw closer, despite their differences. While on a date, word comes through that an infection is causing people to more or less turn into zombies, and the area is supposed to be evacuated. Jack gets bitten by one of the zombies and is fed a special pill in hopes it can stop the infection from overtaking him. But he isn't actually a zombie, which makes the title somewhat misleading. The zombie story comes in abruptly after the cute first half of the book, and it almost feels as if this consists of two different stories only linked together because it has the same characters. The ending also happens too quickly. Görrissen's artwork is slick and attractive, and she clearly has a skill for facial expressions. Ages 11 — up. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

Dicey and Jack, juniors at St. Petersburg High School in Florida, barely know each other before they're assigned as partners for a take care of an egg as if its your baby project.

But they click, and their first real relationship would be great, if it werent for the zombies taking over St. Petersburg. One by one, the adults fall to the zombie fungus, and Jack and Dicey are on their own in an evacuated city (well, except for the teeming masses of zombies). Things turn even grimmer when Jack gets bitten. Dicey has to keep her boyfriends infectionand her boyfriendunder control, avoid gun-crazy locals on a rampage, and put her baseball bat to good use. A last-ditch run for their lives in an ice-cream truck might just get them to safety...and to what Dicey hopes is the cure for zombification.
