Wow. Wow. Wow. The setting is a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled society, not the stuff I usually read. But from page 1, I was hooked, and the pace never slowed down. I have never encountered a heroine like Melanie, nor a book that so beautifully presented what it means to be human. A reviewer noted that the book is extremely difficult to review without spoilers, and I agree. PLEASE read this, and let me know what you think.
