Generation Dead


"Phoebe is just your typical goth girl with a crush. He's strong and silent... and DEAD."

written by: Daniel Waters

pages: 400

my rating 1-5 stars:

5 stars!

Because I really liked the summary on the back of the book, I am not going to make my own. The summary you see below is on the back cover of Generation Dead by Daniel Waters.

All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occuring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. Termed "Living impaired" or "differently biotic", they are doing their best to fit into a society that doesn't want them.
Fitting in is hard enough when you don't have the look or attitude, but when almost everyone else is alive and you're not, it's close to impossible. The kids at Oakvale High don't want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn't breathing. And there are no laws to protect the differently biotic from the people who want them to disappear- for good.
With her pale skin and goth wardrobe, Phoebe has never run with the popular crowd. But no one can believe it when she falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids. Not her best friend, Margi, whose fear of the differently biotic is deeply rooted in guilt over the past. And especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Recently, Adam has realized that his feelings for Phoebe run much deeper than friendship. He would do anything for her, but what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?

This book is a great fusion of zombies and high school life. Daniel Waters made it so true as to what would happen if teenagers came back from the dead, will they? The characters in the book were created very well, at the end of the book I actually felt that I had knew Pheobe and all the other characters all my life or death... I really don't have a favorite character in this book, I loved them all. But if I had to choose I would probably pick Adam or Pheobe or Margi or Tommy or Karen or every other character in the book. I would keep going on about this book, but I would probably end up giving away some main parts in the book. My last words: GO BUY IT NOW!

~*~ This book is for 12 year olds and up. ~*~

I absolutely LOVED this book. And it was such a cliff hanger! And the cover was great! And the author is funny!

Anyways, nice review! Most definitely looking forward to the sequel!
