The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home

Okie's fifteen. She lives in New York. She's got a few problems: she's failing geography, her dad's a wimp, and her mother, Sumatra, is a stone cold bitch. But things get a lot worse when Sumatra turns into a zombie and eats Okie's dad. Clio, Okie's grandmother, lives in Toronto; but since the zombie apocalypse, Toronto's a lot further away than it used to be. Clio suggests that Okie transport Sumatra across the border, because family is family. But coaching Okie by cellphone isn't easy, and Clio has some zombies of her own to contend with. Luckily she has some garden tools. Naomi Alderman and Margaret Atwood team up for this unusual two-hander. Encompassing love, death, sex, and the meaning of family, The Happy Zombie Sunrise Home will surprise, delight, and convince you of the vital importance of keeping ready supplies of rhubarb and mini-wieners in your freezer at all times. The story unfolds beginning October 24.

You ma'am are one brilliant ass writer. I'll be waiting until this becomes a movie. So far loving it and already wishing for a movie! Lol
Very well written. Great start! You effortlessly catch your reader's attention =).
I had  déjà vu while reading the first page... I guess it's my destiny to read this, this book is just simply amazing!
I feel as though I should have a dictionary open beside me as I read this. What's up with these long, complicated words?
I knew when I started reading that this wasn't an ordinary zombie story, but man, THIS?! LOL so good!
This is absolutely hilarious! We're reading it for English class, and we only HAVE to read the 1st chapter, but I'm definitely going to read it all.
