If you know anything about my reading preferences, then you know that I love all of Courtney Summers‘ books. Thankfully my students have caught the Courtney Summers‘ love as well and have been reading her books non-stop. I’ll admit I was a little hesitant when I found out This is Not a Test is a “zombie book,” but it’s really more than that. I’m probably going to finish reading it today and will have a review up soon so you can decide whether it’s a book for you. It released June 19th, so get a copy if you’re interested
A new book trailer was released for This is Not a Test, but it’s mainly a lot of blurbs about the book; I’m featuring both. I’d love to know what you think!
Summary (From Goodreads): 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?
