"'You didn't move, Tommy! He pointed the gun right at me, and you didn't do anything!'
'All you had..had to do was...move,' she said; 'it wouldn't have hurt if he, shot you. But you just stood there, and...and Adam's dead. He's dead, Tommy!'
She looked at him, her eyes blurry with tears. He'd stopped trying to talk, and the mask of conern had fallen away from his face as he stood there.
Just stood there.
'He'd be alive if it wasn't for you, Tommy,' she said, whispering so all the gawkers wouldn't hear.
'He'd still be alive,' she thought, 'and you and I would be together.'"

Summary: (From the front flap) The phenomenon that's been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they're calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation.

Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie -- her Homecoming date Tommy Williams -- her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for
her. Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can't seem to live without.

Wdebo's Review: I was so excited to begin reading this book! I was dying (haha) to know what happened after that big cliffhanger from Generation Dead. It picks up right from where Gen Dead left off.

I liked the story a lot, it still felt very strong, whereas a lot of sequals seem to get weaker because they just feel like add-ons. The storyline was good, except I felt that Phoebe was just using Adam, but I was quite satisfied with the ending, except it was ANOTHER cliffhanger! Daniel Waters better write a third book and fast, I really want to know what happens to everyone!

I think I like Adam the best he's so sweet and kind to Phoebe except when he thinks he has to push her away. I don't like Tommy that much he's, eh, I don't know how to say, I just don't really like him.

I think the cover is pretty good, but Phoebe looks creepy (black hair doesn't suit her... But then again the blond on Gen Dead was weird too...I think I'm way too picky huh?) Maybe if she had a diffrent haircut it would have looked better. And the graves in the back were pretty chessy but still gives a good effect, also I know Phoebe is goth, but WHY IS SHE SO PALE? I mean she is PALER then ADAM who is the ZOMBIE in this equation!!! And why the hell does he have a tan??!!!!! It was quite unnerving. Even though he is v good looking.

All in all, for all those who were breathlessly waiting for the sequal of Gen Dead, you will not be disappointed!

Grade: B-
