Waiting on Wednesday

The phenomenon that's been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they're calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation.
Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie -- her Homecoming date Tommy Williams -- her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for her. Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can't seem to live without.

It's too good to be true. A non-cliché zombie/romance story that manages to be funny and have a message...AND it has a sequel. This utterly shatters everything ever known in the YA genre. Well, Daniel Waters seems to have done this. We're really hoping the Kiss of Life is as good as Generation Dead, but we shall see. Fingers crossed.
