Tagline: In a zombie apocalypse, best friends really are forever.
Best friends forever takes on a whole new meaning when you’re a zombie.
Penny helped Mia survive the horrors of high school.
Now Mia has a chance to return the favor and help Penny survive the zombie apocalypse.
Another body flings itself at the car. The undead have some sort of death wish.
“We need a shortcut,” says Mia.
If I hadn’t applied her makeup for the play, I might have mistaken her for one of those things. Zombies. Undead. Walkers. Did it matter what they were called? “Where?”
“There,” she yells, pointing ahead. “Cut across Old Man Jenkins’ place!”
“Are you crazy? He’ll call the police,” I say.
“I think the police are a little busy right now,” says Mia.
She has a point. I make a hard right by his driveway, clipping his mailbox. Wincing, I glance in the rearview mirror. Envelopes and catalogues fly in the air like confetti at a parade. If I survive this, I might not survive the homeowner’s wrath.
“Watch out!” Mia is holding onto to the dashboard for dear life.
I turn my attention back to the lawn and swerve, just missing a zombie…or was it Old Man Jenkins? He’s so old it’s hard to tell.
“Maybe I should drive,” offers Zack.
“It’s not my fault Driver’s Ed didn’t cover the end of the world maneuvers!”
