this is not a test by courtney summers

How can you be afraid of becoming a zombie if you already feel like one? Abandoned by her older sister Lily and left behind to endure her father's physical and emotional abuse, Sloane Price is just waiting for the bite that frees, with a suicide note tucked into her pocket to prove it. Now she's holed up in her former high school with five other students, watching them fight for their lives while she waits for the inevitable. A unique take on the zombie genre that will stay with the reader long after the last page is turned. Give it to fans of Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Grade 8+
