Review: Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Book: Generation Dead by Daniel Waters
Pages: 392 pages
Publisher: Hyperion
Release Date: May 6, 2008
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn’t want them.
The administration at Oakvale High attempts to be more welcoming of the “differently biotic." But the students don’t want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn’t breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the “living impaired” from the people who want them to disappear—for good.
When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids, no one can believe it; not her best friend, Margi, and especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has feelings for Phoebe that run much deeper than just friendship; he would do anything for her. But what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?
My Thoughts:
I really love zombies so I snatched this book off of and had it shipped to me ASAP. I really liked this book because it was different yet the same from the regular zombie story. My favorite character was Phoebe because she’s really smart and she gets things done and she doesn’t care what people think about her.

I didn’t like how Adam’s obsession with Phoebe was so obvious. I mean, it got pretty annoying at one point. I also hated how there wasn’t really a setting in this book. It was sort of just scattered everywhere.
All in all, this book is definitely one you should check out!
Grade: 4 Stars
