A zombie virus threatens fairy-tale charactersas well as those from the lore of Barrie, Baum, and morein this fun mashup from Phillips and Nissenson. Between her mothers disappearance and her own struggles with anxiety, 14-year-old Caitlin Fletcher just wants to fly under the radar at her new British prep school. She doesnt succeedJack, a fellow new student, takes an interest in her, much to the annoyance of the schools queen bee, Piper. After a prank orchestrated by Piper lands Caitlin and her younger sister, Natalie, in a graveyard on Halloween, the pair comes face to face with a zombified (yet surprisingly coherent) Rapunzel. While this Rapunzel still hungers for brains, she can keep her zombielike instincts in check; she warns that unless the sisters help defeat the Queen of Hearts, the fairy-tale world will fall victim to complete zombification. While the number of coincidences and lucky breaks helping the characters along causes some of the novels tension to fizzle, the authors provide a variety of memorable cameos and characters, living or otherwise. Ages 8up. (BookLife)
