Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real.
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

“If they see you, they will chase you. And if they catch you, they will devour you.” Alice Bell’s father warned her about the monsters that come out at night, but Ali doesn’t believe him until she sees zombies kill her family. After relocating to a new town, 16-year-old Ali is relieved to discover that she isn’t entirely on her own: it turns out that local bad boy Cole Holland and his rough crowd hunt zombies. In this kickoff to the White Rabbit Chronicles, Ali works to keep her remaining loved ones safe, decode ghostly warnings, learn new tricks to take down evil spirits, and figure out whether she’s ready to get involved with the hottest guy she’s ever known. Balancing graphic zombie fighting and complicated romantic relationships, Showalter (the Intertwined series) fleshes out this action-packed paranormal story with a giddy focus on the push-and-pull attraction between Ali and Cole and the nastier side of the high school social scene. The result is a zippy story with crossover appeal that highlights the power of guilt, faith, and self-confidence. Ages 14–up. Agent: Deidre Knight, the Knight Agency. (Oct.)
