Lincoln Junior High School, 7th Grade
An unknown virus that turns people into zombies has been unleashed. It’s not any average day that a high school kid will see his best friends turn into blood sucking monsters. But unfortunately, Brian isn’t ordinary. He and his friends have to survive in their own high school while zombies are roaming around looking for more flesh to feed on. Besides surviving, he has to save his sister and his ex-girlfriend (who he’s still in love with) and get out of the high school and go home. Except it’s not that easy. His sister is on the other side of the school, which is also 2 buildings down through the parking lot– where all the blood thirsty monsters are! Not only that, the whole high school is surrounded with a big metal gate that is much taller than any of them. So it sounds easy right? Get sister. Get ex-girlfriend. Be a leader and take everyone to safety. But it’s not, and he doesn’t want to risk it all.
I think Sick is a wonderful book. The author wrote really phenomenal details which made you feel like you were right there with everyone–facing the antagonists. Also, for those who don’t like scary books, this book isn’t scary at all. It’s a great adventure with the main character Brain, his friends, and some other students from the drama department. I would recommend this for 7th graders and up because of the vocabulary, language and because of some of the violence.
