Girls Save the World in This One by Ash Parsons is very much a suspend your belief kind of novel. What are the odds that a girl obsessed with zombies suddenly finds herself in a world where she is defending the living against the dead as real-‘live’ zombies showed up at her zombie convention? I mean, come on. But, even with that fact, I actually think this sounds like a rather fun book. Will I read it? Maybe, maybe not, but that doesn’t mean I don’t greatly appreciate the idea.
June’s whole life has been leading up to this: ZombieCon, the fan convention celebrating all things zombies. She and her two best friends plan on hitting all the panels, photo ops, and meeting the heartthrob lead of their favorite zombie apocalypse show Human Wasteland. And when they arrive everything seems perfect, though June has to shrug off some weirdness from other fans—people shambling a little too much, and someone actually biting a cast member. Then all hell breaks loose and June and her friends discover the truth: real zombies are taking over the con. Now June must do whatever it takes to survive a horde of actual brain-eating zombies—and save the world.
