Review of Alice in Zombieland

Title: Alice in Zombieland
Author: Gena Showalter
Series: White Rabbit Chronicles (book 1)

I wish I could back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mum and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish...

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book. It's supposedly a spin off of the original Alice in Wonderland series by Lewis Carroll. 
The story follows Alice Bell, a teenager. Her father has always been a bit crazy. He sees 'monsters' - he is not entirely sure what they and only he sees them. However, after a horrific car accident that kills her mum, dad and beloved little sister, Alice starts to see the 'monsters' too.
Alice survives the crash and has to move in her hew grandparents. She starts a new school and becomes friends with Kat, who has a big secret that we found out about later in the book. Whilst at her new school, Alice eyes up bad boy Cole Holland. He's moody, brooding and darn right delicious! Everybody is scared of him and they have a right to be - he's the top zombie slayer. When Cole and Alice lock eyes they share visions; neither are sure of what they are or what they represent.
When Cole and Alice eventually talk they discover a connection between them (and not just the romantic kind)....
I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't the kind of zombie book I was expecting but nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it. Certain parts could be ever so slightly confusing but still understandable. 
I would recommend this book if you're looking for a zombie book with a bit of a difference. It's not like the original Alice in Wonderland story so don't expect many similarities or a story that ties in with that.
