On what should have been her sweet sixteenth birthday, Alice Bell tasted tragedy.  Zombies killed her mom, dad and younger sister, and Alice’s innocence.  Besides numbing grief and bone marrow deep need for revenge, Alice regrets that she believed her late father was a lunatic when he insisted monsters lived.

 

Alice believes she is targeted by these evil beasts for death too.  She knows she cannot confront the malevolents by herself, but never expected Cole Holland, the student at school with the worst reputation, to become her defender and mentor.  With him and his friends accompanying her, Alice prepares for war against the zombies; unaware that her new ally has secrets that make zombies look like preschoolers.

 

The first White Rabbit Chronicles is an exciting teen urban fantasy starring a terrific protagonist whose entire life changes in a nanosecond.  The key cast is fully developed while enhancing Alice’s coming out party.  Although references from the Carroll’s classic starts as fun, these citations eventually distract from what overall is an entertaining zombification of Alice.
