Who will you rely on in the zombie apocalypse?

*

Bodies on the TV, explosions, barriers, and people fleeing. No access to social media. And a dad who’ll suddenly bite your head off – literally. These teens have to learn a new resilience…

Members of a band wield weapons instead of instruments.

A pair of siblings find there’s only so much you can joke about, when the menace is this strong.

And a couple find depth among the chaos.

Highway Bodies is a unique zombie apocalypse story featuring a range of queer and gender non-conforming teens who have lost their families and friends and can only rely upon each other.

Now the news broadcast is fuzzy and it says there were minor explosions in town, caused by rioters, and I feel like my skulls been hollowed out. Because I don’t know why they’re telling us this.

page 77 snippet – Highway Bodies

I thought I knew what this book was going to be about, I thought page 77 would be gritty. Now I’m confused but in the very best way! I have wanted to read more of Alison Evans since I read their short in Kindred. SO when a family member gifted me a Whitcoulls Gift Card I went and picked this up! Now I’m even more eager to read it!

Seventy-Seven Saturday is a weekly blog meme hosted by the Aussie YA Bloggers where every Saturday we share a snippet of a book from page 77.
