By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

The Zero Degree Zombie Zone - Patrik Henry Bass, Jerry Craft

I really appreciated that the main characters of this one are all African-American. No tokens here! And it’s a niceish enemies-to-friends story, with a subplot of Bakari’s grandfather that seemed very true to life. However, there’s basically no plot. Definitely one to hand to reluctant readers (of any skin color) but more than a bit grating as an adult.
