My rating: 2 of 5 stars
As you can probably tell, I'm spending October reading creepy books. So I thought I'd give this one a go. Although I enjoyed the beginning because it had a Stepford Wives and Disturbing Behavior vibe going, the more I read the less I liked it.
My main problem is with Hannah. She starts out being a normal girl. She's new in school and wants to fit in, but she's okay with staying off the radar. At first. Then she becomes obsessed with fitting in with the popular blondes. It's all she cares about, and she treats the few kids willing to offer friendship like crap. She just falls into the whole cheerleader thing too quickly too. I wasn't convinced about anything, because Hannah is awful. And not interesting awful, either.
And the zombie angle? O_o
Nope. Not remotely creepy.
Actually, the creepiest thing about this book was the set up. And that's mostly because I let it build up in my own head. Oh, and Lukas was kinda creepy with his turning up everywhere and always warning her and letting her step all over him.
Yeah. Unfortunately, this book didn't work for me. I just didn't care about the characters or the town, or anything.
