It’s the end of the
world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is
little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors.
One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a
monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t
sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s
failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time
to give up.
As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to
witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want
to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive
begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is
determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more
by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.
When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?
Were you there when Twitter totally flipped over how gorgeous this cover is? I was. Such an amazing cover. And the book sounds amazing, like one of Courtney's contemporary novels mixed with zombies. Insta-buy.
