**Medal Winner of the 2014 New Apple Book Awards** “Each taste, each mouthful awakened a part of me that I had never known. The sweet and bitter tenderness of every chew sent my body into a whirlwind...” Everything seems ordinary for Grace Watkins. With the exception of her abnormal obsession for B-rated slasher movies and a strange hunger that is building inside her with each passing day, her life is as typical as any other senior at Middleton High. The only issue Grace has is keeping her protective best friend away from giving her lone enemy, the ever-so-popular Sonny Westwood, a classic schoolyard beat down. It doesn't help that Grace has had a secret crush on Sonny’s man, Tristen, since the first day she laid eyes on him. But as one of her favorite nights of the year approaches, Grace begins to realize there may not be anything...normal about her. Her body is changing and her appetite is growing. Her urges are intensifying and becoming uncontrollable. And she just...wants...more. What happens when something or someone stands in the way of feeding her need? Better yet, what the hell is wrong with her?
Review by Lissa:
Ummm wow!!! I'm so glad I stumbled upon this book. This has to be one best, Top 5 Zombie books I've ever read.
The story follows Grace a teenager. Just like any teenager, she's in high school, she has her BFF, and her secret crush. Some things that would be odd is that she eats a TON of food. More like a buffet. Her mom tells her that it's just her growing up and needing to eat more.
Slowly things start happening that make her question what is really going on. But she also has the attention of her Crush! Tristen Miles.
"No, seriously. If you are a zombie, I'm a zombie. It would happen anyway if it were real right?"
He has no idea how real this maybe. Grace becomes hungrier and hungrier. Which makes her do things, she would not normally do.
I loved the direction the author took with this story. It was really interesting and I didn't stop reading. I finished it really fast. I'm gonna have to read the second book, Escaping Grace. Super excited!
