Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius."

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.

Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

Melanie takes the reader on an exciting, suspenseful, and unexpected journey that explores the meaning of what it is to be human. There are surprises that I don't want to give away, but let me say this book is an amazing read that you shouldn't miss.

I enjoyed this. Its a bit of a different take of what would happen if zombies take over. Its odd and quirky and somewhat similar to Warm Bodies (which I've only seen the movie).
