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.

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.
omfg I love this book already cause I'm a strong believer of the zombie apocalypse
@benjmartinpanganiban rhubarb is a type of... fruit I THINK lol could be a veggie. sort of sweet sort of tart.
I keep thinking 'Toronto' says 'Totoro' and I get excited and confused and then I realize that this isn't anime fanfiction. So now I'm a little sad.
