This is a rather short and rather eerily read. It was actually a bit more realistic then I was initially expecting and instead of focusing on the virus infected humans (zombies) it focuses on a school bus full of teens and a few teachers. It touches on the fear and panic that goes with a situation like this, and you can't help but feel terrible for the kids and their parents. There is no true main character and it doesn't focus on one person for very long, but you get an idea of what these people are like. It's not terribly long nor is it all that different from other zombie books but it is a nice read for those times when you need something kind of horrific. It's a decent read.
