Summary (from author's website):
It’s the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won’t stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn’t sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she’s failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up.
As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she’s forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, everyone’s motivations to survive begin to change in startling ways and soon the group’s fate is determined less and less by what’s happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life–and death–inside.
When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?
I have absolutely enjoyed Courtney Summer's previous three novels, so reading This Is Not A Test is a must for me! I like how she's moving away from contemporary to write a zombie novel this time around... It should be awesome!
How do you like the cover? I really love it! Everything from the red blood splatter in the corner to the fonts used and the blue background just screams it's a win for me! The posture of the girl makes us question if it's a zombie and/or Sloane too...
The wait until June to read This Is Not A Test will be a long one!
