This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

thisI thought this zombie apocalypse novel was amazing! I was addicted to it within the first few pages. I loved how the author incorporated every day problems into the storyline like parental abuse, drugs, popular kids, running away from home, suicide, and so many other things. I also loved how each character had distinct qualities that made the reader remember them. Summers captures the true emotions that one would encounter during a tragedy like this occurring. I loved it!
