Notes:
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her 'our little genius'. Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

I read this all in one morning. I have to say for a zombie apocalypse type novel it's gripping. It doesn't shy away from anything and touches on some very harsh lessons for the human characters involved. I think the ending is a good one since it's essentially writing yourself into a corner to have the human race all turned into zombies. Finding a cure would be miraculous but not that believable, killing them all would be impossible. So what do you do?
