Happy book birthday to Girls Save the World in This One by Ash Parsons! Anyone looking for a zombie tale with girls at the helm of the protection force? When zombie-loving June’s zombie convention is crashed by very real zombies, it is quickly up to her and her friends to save the day. I’m really loving the girl-power take on a zombie story, I have to be honest. I’m not a zombie person, but this new release may just be worth breaking my rule for.
Also just look at that cover!
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.
