YA Review: Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles, Book 1) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Alice in Zombieland" the 1st book in her White Rabbit Chronicles series by Gena Showalter.

Product Description

She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn't careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

My Review:

This book is inspired by Alice in Wonderland but I'm happy it didn't go in that way (not really a fan of Alice in Wonderland) though the heroine's name is Alice and there is a white rabbit.

Alice Bell is a typical happy teenager who loves her family though her dad is paranoid and disturbing (sees zombies) and doesn't let any of them go out after dark because of this.

Then on the night of her birthday after watching her sister perform on stage she loses everything after a tragic car crash. She goes to live with her grandparents who live in a nearby neighborhood. She goes to a new school, make new friends and live a life without her family.

Then she meets Cole and as soon as their eyes meet their is an instant connection between them. Cole Holland is a bad-ass tattooed leader of a group of misfit teens who constantly have bruises and sometimes miss school or are late. Cole also has a tender and caring side to him which he shows to Alice once in awhile. He knows things that Alice has been figuring out and she needs him to tell her she isn't crazy and that he dad was right.

Alice is great heroine because she's strong, smart, speaks her mind, has an amazing sense of humor and willing to fight to honor her family and friends.

Cole is a great hero because he's strong, smart, a great leader and fighter, treats Alice with respect and is prepared to defend her to the bitter death.
