Sick by Tom Leveen

3 Stars
Sick is one of the many, many books out there with the zombie’s as the plot and main characters.  I have only read one other zombie book, so I don’t have much to compare this book to.  I have however read many YA’s and this book dialogue was a bit much for a YA.  It was almost as if the kids were talking like they were adults and not having much slang in this book.  I did, however, like the zombie action and the teenage survivor feel to the book.  I really didn’t get The Breakfast Club feel but that is a great movie and comparing this book to something that great was just wrong.  I also am a huge fan of The Walking Dead so I did get the connection there.


Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They’re the misfits and the troublemakers—the ones who jump their high school’s fence to skip class regularly. So when a deadly virus breaks out, they’re the only ones with a chance of surviving.

The virus turns Brian’s classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don’t die easily. The whole school goes on lockdown, but Brian and his best friend, Chad, are safe (and stuck) in the theater department—far from Brian’s sister, Kenzie, and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids Brian had never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won’t be easy, and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates.
