Reviews

It is the zombie novel only Beaudoin could write, an allusive horror novel that engages in philosophical, social, and humanist critique while providing plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) Beaudoin's blackly comedic tale takes zombie lore to new territory--not only with the outbreak's unusual point of origin but also with its consideration of the next phase of human evolution. An utterly original voice, plenty of sly pop-culture references, and a twist ending make for a satisfying read. --The Horn Book This novel is full of dark, satiric humor and irreverent references to punk rock and horror movies. . . . The conclusion of the book is brave and unexpected, offering readers a twist in a bleakly memorable ending. Booktalk this smart skewering of the zombie genre to your older teen readers as a gloriously bloody, profane smash-up of Louis Sachar's HOLES and the film ZOMBIELAND, and it will find an enthusiastic audience. --VOYA Horror goes hand in hand with dark comedy in this wickedly unpredictable adventure, as Beaudoin simultaneously skewers the fast food industry and familiar zombie tropes. --Publishers Weekly There is a certain "horror movie" aura that keeps readers wondering what is down in the basement or waiting to pop out from behind the door. The Infects may have an audience with cool-cat readers who like being one step ahead of the adults in the room --School Library Journal With sarcastic teens, hundreds of zombies, and an evil villain plotting to take over the world, fans of horror films will enjoy this fast and fun read, especially high school boys! --Library Media Connection Forget about twists and turns; it takes expectations and turns them upside down and sideways and I loved every moment of the weird, scary, funny, terrifying trip. --A Chair, A Fireplace, & A Tea Cozy (SLJ blog)
