Waiting on Wednesday (108): This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

Publisher's Description
It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

Zombies!  I like that this one is going to focus on the group trying to make it through it and the problems the group has without the zombies.- Jessica

  6. This is the first zombie book I saw coming out this year that I was interested in, it looks so good! I think it was on Netgalley for a little while, don't know if it still is.

    Very nice choice. :)

  8. Zombies isn't really my thing but the underlying psychological stuff sounds like the perfect head trip.
