3.5 stars. This was such a haunting book. The writer wrote such a gruesome world but in a way where it wasn't hard to believe that it was real. Temple, for being only 15, moves through this zombie infested world with ease adm familiarity - which shouldn't be surprising considering its all she's known. The people that she meets and the stories that exisit just add to this tale leading up to the end. Although for me it wasn't completely unexpected, I was still shocked at the end.
