Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1)
By Gena Showalter
Available 9/25/12 from Harlequin Teen
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 changed 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.
I wish I could go 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 mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.
I wish... Yeah, I wish.

OK. I'm ridiculously excited about this! For fans of Gena Showalter, we know she knows how to spin a captivating tale. Throw in zombies and a twist of Alice in Wonderland and it's bound to be very entertaining! But now I have the Yeah Yeah Yeahs Heads Will Roll song stuck in my head.
