Can love survive the zombie apocalypse?

Maybe Dicey Bell’s first chance at a real relationship was dead from the start. She’s the star of her high school baseball team, and Jack Chen’s the star of the science program. Her idea of a study session includes sleeping in the sun, and his idea of a good game involves dungeons and dice. But opposites start attracting when they’re assigned to be partners in a class project. When an outbreak of a weird infection hits the town—it eats your brains and makes you hungry for the living—it might not mean just the end of their first date. It might mean the end of everything.

Will Dicey and Jack’s relationship fall apart faster than zombies in the Florida sun, or can they beat the odds and find a happy ending?
