Dead Over Heels

The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning... Glenview, North Carolina. Also known-at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg-as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. 

What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic...hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town. At first, Ava's certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone-or something-rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. 

The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don't even like each other fighting for their lives. But that's the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you'll meet your undead end. Or when you'll fall dead over heels for a boy...

I re-read Dead Over Heels for the second time and honestly, it is one of the cutest zombie-themed YA book for me. I don't normally read anything about zombies but I am glad I really find this light and funny! It is just that the banter between the characters that gets me excited how they will suddenly have the sparks. Dating in zombie apocalypse is not so bad at all! In fact, I find it so cute and the fact that it has some jump-scare makes me alert to zombies about to get Cole and Ava.

I asked myself if I was reading Dead Over Heels at the right moment when Christmas is just round the corner. It doesn't matter, really. What matters is that I thoroughly enjoyed it and even then I get my mind off from final exam this week. Moreover, I think Bethany - Cole's ex, is just plain malicious yet she is something that I was expecting. Ava and Cole's sense of humor got me every time. The best thing was I get to laugh out loud without meaning to.

Overall, Dead Over Heels is plainly just amusing enough for me to forget about what I have been stressing about this past week. The romance between Ava and Cole is too cute for me to comprehend because they have to have each other's back. It's all or nothing for both of them! I recommend this book to those who is not really a fan of zombie-themed books but still try the best to get to read one that eventually makes it a positive signal sign to have it a go! This book is for you!
