The Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins says this paranormal action-adventure “breathes new life into the zombie genre” and has “a terrific twist of an ending.”

Most kids have enough to deal with between school, homework, extracurricular activities, and friends, but Molly Bigelow has something else on her list: hunting zombies. By day, Molly attends MIST—the Metropolitan Institute of Science and Technology—but outside the classroom she’s busy dealing with the undead. Because not only do zombies exist, they’re everywhere, and it’s her job to help police them and keep the peace. Sure, she’d like to be a regular kid, but given that her mother was the most revered (or feared, depending on your perspective) zombie hunter in the history of New York City, “regular” just isn’t possible. Molly’s got some legendary footsteps to follow—and some undeadly consequences if she fails.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved how the mood and tone were very nice and smooth, the opposite of intense - whatever that is. Anyways, I found this book a really interesting novel to read, and can't wait to read the next one! I enjoyed all the characters and misadventures and misunderstandings. I really do recommend this book because I found it really exciting and great! I would like to thank James Ponti and everybody else who contributed to this book. My day would not have been made without it. Last but not least, I just want to say that, while I have read tons and tons of books, not many were as enjoyable and fun to read as Dead City.

              I decided to read this book because I love anything with zombies in it. Also, I liked that this book had zombies that could interact and speak with humans. Most zombies in movies and books cannot. This book was a quick read for me since it always had me nervous and waiting to see what happens next, especially when Molly (the main human character) goes down into the sewers with the zombies. Their are zombies that like humans and many that don't! So, you will have to read the book to know if she makes it out alive!
