When Zombies Attack
|West Virginia. A state that might just enjoy a zombie apocalypse.|
To survive a zombie apocalypse, you'll need the obvious stuff first and foremost- stuff like food, water, and some dry socks.
You'll also need ways to defend yourself and your family- so be sure to grab your weapons. Guns and ammo are always good. You could even use a bow and arrows if you're a real crack shot. The trouble with both of these is that you will eventually run out. So, it's a good idea to grab machetes, axes, even the garden hoes for defense. Oh, and a tomahawk is pretty handy too, if you happen to have one laying around.
It's always sensible to have the other essentials available: There is the obvious things like band aids and antibiotics. The not so obvious thing, like alcohol. It can serve triple duty: pain killer, antiseptic, and zombie-anxiety reliever. Oh, and a manual can opener for all those cans of food you'll be finding while out looting. And some matches. I'd keep lots and lots of matches. I know rubbing sticks together looks easy in the movies, but I've tried it and it ain't so easy.
And last, but not least, stock up on the toilet paper. If there are zombies looking to eat your brains, you are in a load of crap. Be prepared.

Fifteen-year-old Jeremy Barnes would rather watch a zombie movie than shoot a real one, but he has no choice if his family wants to survive the end of the world. Their plan? Drive across the infected United States to a cabin in the Colorado Rockies without a scratch, but their trip takes a complicated detour in the middle of Nebraska when they find Kaylynn, a girl who can handle a baseball bat better than Jeremy can hold a .45 Berretta. And when they stumble into a sanctuary, Jeremy soon learns that Kaylynn is stronger than she looks—a deadly secret lies inside her.
After the radio picks up a distress call from Kansas City about a possible cure, Jeremy’s parents go with a team to investigate. They never return. The only way to find their parents is for Jeremy and his sister Jewel to rely on a dangerous girl who might just turn on them at any moment.
Praise for The Undead Road:
"For me, zombie stories are never about the killing. They're about the survivors and how people deal with the apocalypse. To this undead end, David Powers King has come up with the most original spin on zombies I've ever read." - Michael Offutt, author of Slipstream and Oculus
