Friday Night Lights with Zombies! This is a smart and witty debut with all of the pathos of almost adult high schoolers mixed with a horror fest that is football. Except that horror fest turns into a funny commentary on high school and sports. I am not a huge football fan, so I was a little worried when I started to read this, but just like Friday Night Lights, football is just a background for the real story here about a football team that turns into zombies. Brown gets right to the story within the first fifty pages so there is no waiting for character development and scene setting. Adults and teens will love this one. I could really see this one as a movie.

This book sounded like something that might interest me, until I realized that there is a bit of paranormal (zombies?) to it. I have never been able get into that type of stuff. I might give it a try though. His mother, Sandra Brown, is one of my favourite authors, so maybe I will give him a try.
I suppose it was only a matter of time before zombies or vamps infiltrated the world of football. Since you reference Friday Night Lights, I’m there! Thanks for the info.
