What I Thought:

This was a fantastic book and not at all what I expected from the cover. I'm not sure that I can tell you EXACTLY what I expected, but it was more along the lines of vampires or raging zombies in my mind. Now they did have "zombies" but anyway...

I'll say that I was pleasantly suprised by Ryan's story telling abilities all the way around. The setting for the story was great and so were the storyline and characters. I'd hate to give anything away about this one but I'll say that while it had some grusomness (is that even a word? ) it was also a sad and touching story all at the same time.

I was totally pleased with this one and think that guys and gals alike will enjoy it!

About The Book:
(from Pub website)

For the first time in Killington High School history, the Jackrabbits football team is one win away from the district championship where it will face its most vicious rival, the Elmwood Heights Badgers. On the way to the game, the Jackrabbits’s bus plunges into a river, killing every player except for bad-boy quarterback Cole Logan who is certain the crash was no accident—given that Cole himself was severely injured in a brutal attack by three ski-masked men earlier that day. Bent on payback, Cole turns to a mysterious fan skilled in black magic to resurrect his teammates. But unless the undead Jackrabbits defeat their murderous rival on the field, the team is destined for hell. In a desperate race against time, with only his coach’s clever daughter, Savannah Hickman, to assist him, Cole must lead his zombie team to victory
