Atom, 2010. ISBN 9781907410215.
The book Infinity is a great read and I recommend it to all young adults and their teachers. Infinity would be a good resource to introduce reading to reluctant readers because it has an attractive font and is very easy to read.
The main character is Nick. He lives in a three-bedroom house in a run down part of the city. He is fourteen years old and hates going to school because the other students ridicule him for wearing second-hand clothes. In the storyline, Nick finds himself being pulled between the forces of good and evil. The plot is inhabited by killer zombies who enjoy feasting on human brains. Nick and his friends have to kill them to stay alive. As if that isn't enough Nick's mother constantly nags him and makes his life a living hell. The reader is left in suspended animation at the end of the book. I really need to know what happens next, the poor guy needs a break.
When does the sequel come out?
