WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The story changes perspective frequently between Cassie, Evan, and Zombie. I feel like as soon as you get used to Cassie's voice and her storyline, her lone survival, it switches to Zombie in this tough, military lifestyle. At first it was annoying, but as you start to see the three storylines intertwine, and you begin to learn things that the character doesn't know. Then for all three characters to end up together, I really look forward to reading the second book and finding out how the clash of all the different characters and their personality help them all survive together.
