Zombie Fiction- Young Adult
Zombies aren’t just for adults. The genre is becoming increasingly popular with Young Adults and there are some great books on the market. Here are my top five zombie young adult novels that everyone should read:
- Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter – Alice Bell’s family is killed. Wiped out, leaving her alone. Ali is a fighter though and starts out on the road to revenge.
- Undead by Kirsty McKay – A school skiing trip takes an undead twist. Bobby is the new kid in school, hailing from the US of A she struggles to fit in at an English school. Despite wanting to avoid her new classmates, Bobby is thrown together with them when a zombie virus turns most of the class into undead monsters. This book is fast paced, exciting and has some great one liners.
- Zom-B by Darren Shan – B becomes a zombie after an outbreak at her school. After she sacrifices a fellow classmate to save herself, she spends her time as a zombie trying to deal with her guilt. Darren Shan is a master when it comes to horror and this book really deals with moral issues and hard topics like racism.
- Zombie Youth by H.E. Goodhue – Once again an outbreak occurs while a group of students are in school. Old rivalries must be put aside and school bullies become allies as this plucky group of teens create their own fortress in the school and battle the undead forces that surround it.
- Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick – Alex hikes into the woods to say goodbye to her parents who have passed away. While out there, she witnesses an electromagnetic pulse which wipes out most of the world. The survivors are left to face off against zombie like bad guys while trying to stay alive in this harsh new world. Gritty, with a great cast, this is a brilliant book.
All these great books are available to buy online and should definitely be on your bookshelf if you love zombies.
