Generation Dead - Daniel Waters

"Phoebe Kendall is just your typical Goth girl with a crush. He’s strong and silent…and dead.
All over the country, a strange phenomenon is occurring. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. But when they come back to life, they are no longer the same. Feared and misunderstood, they are doing their best to blend into a society that doesn’t want them.
The administration at Oakvale High attempts to be more welcoming of the “differently biotic." But the students don’t want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn’t breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the “living impaired” from the people who want them to disappear—for good.
When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids, no one can believe it; not her best friend, Margi, and especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has feelings for Phoebe that run much deeper than just friendship; he would do anything for her. But what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?"  -Goodreads

I didn't like this book at all. Last year I bought the hardcover book at bargain price. I am glad I got it for 5 dollars, but I still think I should not have bought it. Last year I started reading this book thinking it was going to be an okay read and it was going to only take me a couple of days . Boy, was I wrong. It took me 2 weeks to read only the first 144 pages. This book would be great for middle grade readers, goth chic fans, and zombie obsessors. But since I am none of the above, I didn't really fall for this book. Don't get me wrong I am a sucker for and all in for the Z war, but when it comes to a book were zombies are trying to fit back in to normal everyday life; it doesn't really hold my interest.
Last week I decided to start back into the book and try to finish it and maybe I would have a change of heart like I did with DEARLY DEPARTED by LIA HABEL. But I didn't. It only took me 2 days to finish about 200 pages in DEARLY DEPARTED. It took me a week to only read about 134 more pages in GD. I honestly didn't like anything in this book, thus giving it a 1 out of 5 stars. I am sure that other people like this book and are completely obsessed with this book. But it just didn't work out for me.
