Alice in Zombieland (The White Rabbit Chronicles, #1)

Synopsis

She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I’d tell my sister no.
I’d never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I’d zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I’d hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I’d tell them I love them.
I wish… Yeah, I wish

My Review
There are many things that Alice is not allowed to do because of the monsters her father is always talking about. She doesn’t believe in the monsters, until a tragic accident leads her to believe otherwise. The accident left Alice an orphan and she is sent to live with her grandparents.
At first Alice isn’t quiet sure of what she saw at the accident. She has to keep it to herself so others don’t think that she is crazy. Once she meets Cole and gets to know him a little, she finds someone else that believes in these monsters.
Then the adventures begin. She has to learn to live with herself as a person for the choices she has made in life. She also has to learn about the world she lives in that she previously thought wasn’t real.
I really enjoyed reading Alice in Zombieland. Based on the title I was thinking it would be a mix of Alice in Wonderland and zombies. Although it wasn’t, I am glad that I read it!
