She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

My Splurge:
 Well, I'll just start off with this is not exactly what I was expecting. I'm still not sure if that was really good or bad. Huh. Before everything I can tell you this appeals more towards general paranormal romance fans that fans of horror and such. The gore factor is a 0-0.5 while the other stuff is more of a 7 or 8(out of 10). Well, here goes nothing.

Alice(Ali) is a shy, stubborn, not easily intimidated, funny with a sense of humor (Ali to Frosty and it's not at all what you're gonna think)"Okay, here’s a hint. A lot of people were there. There was some screaming, definitely some writing. A looot of touching." girl of 16 that has had everything taken from her but given enough to survive. Although she doesn't know it yet. Since the car crash her sister has been watching her and every time _____ is about to happen she puts a white rabbit in the sky(that's about was original Alice in Wonderland as we get....besides her name)

Ali's little sister actually played at pretty decent part of the book for being killed so early in the book. She was the watcher and felt a sense of protection over her older, zombie slaying sister (how cool is that title?!?!)
http://apps.genashowalter.com/aiz/cole-badge-small.jpg Cole is this super hot, bossy zombie slaying who in the beginning wants to push her us against the  wall and kiss her until they're both breathless and that makes him want to kill her. Later in the book he just wants to kiss her...or kill her....maybe just some of both. hehe. And what's even more adorable about them....he's so protective of her and it is too freaking well.... adorable. Lol "“Cole was watching Justin as if he wanted to flay the skin from his bones, throw it down and play “Dance, Dance Revolution” on it.”( this is Ali's thought as Justin-another boy who likes her- walks away from her)
You guys have no idea how happy I was when they finally kissed. It was amazing and steamy and (almost) perfect. THANKS A LOT FROSTY!!! grrrrr
*Poppy+Bronx....unexpected but amazing.*
Oh and by the way, I hate you Wren and Justin and Jaclyn.....you bring shame to the name. So glad its not spelled the same or I'd have a fit. Hmph. 

Grandparents slang/dating/sex talk omg hahahahhahahhahhhahahaha I seriously almost died like every time they tried to do teenage slang. Nobody does it like us. (;

OMG KAT! I love her so much. She was an amazing addition to the story. He ego was sky high and wrapped around the world. I wanted her and Frosty back together asap. Like a week ago. They are perfect they should have never broken up. Well I understand why they did....

“"He ignored me, thank God, saying to Kat, "Let go of Frosty's leash. You're choking the life out of him."
Kat's eyes narrowed to tiny slits, a sure sign of her aggression. "He deserves to choke. He didn't keep little frosty in his pants this summer." the words snapped like a whip.
"He did." Cole snapped back with unwavering confidence.
"Not, not, not!" she shouted with a stomp of her foot.
"What are we five?" Cole said.


I felt so sorry for her. And I loved how she was always like "True Story" twas hilarious. 

I loved how at the end all the guys who are Zombie Hunters are all like big brothers to Ali.

In the end, like I said not AIW but may be good may be bad....that's for you to decide.
