Dead City: 05/01/14
Dead City by James Ponti is the start of a new tween zombie series set in New York. Molly Bigelow leads a double life. By day she's a student at MIST (Metropolitan Institute of Science and Technology) and at night (and pretty much any time she's not in school), she's dealing with zombies as an Omega.
Now this isn't a zombie apocalypse story. No, whatever did that happened before Molly was born. This is a zombie coexisting with the living story, like the coda of Shaun of the Dead, but for a tween audience. Molly's mother was an Omega too, a member of a team charged with keeping the zombies in line and destroying those who have gone mad.
In this first book, Molly learns that she has what it takes to be an Omega and begins her training. She learns how to disguise herself as a zombie and uncovers some shocking secrets both about the zombie society and her own mother's involvement with the Omegas.
The sequel is Blue Moon which I also loved and will review soon.
