Team Zombie OR Team Unicorn?!

Have you read the latest, greatest in YA yet? If not, what are you waiting for?! Zombies vs. Unicorns is one of the most creative YA novels I have read in a while. The concept is fabulous, the stories are devourable, and the authors are some of the best in the business.

You will be delighted with learning how to care for a baby killer unicorn, which is necessary in today's uncertain times. You'll read how to outsmart the adults and escape into a world that has been over-taken with zombies. You will be treated to a tale of love and devotion, zombie-style. And, you'll experience the pressure of trying to keep a town safe from zombies, even when those zombies are your family and friends.

A few of my personal favorites:
"The Care of Feeding of Your Baby Killer Unicorn" - Diana Peterfreund
"Inoculata" - Scott Westerfeld
"Princess Prettypants" - Meg Cabot
"Cold Hands" - Cassandra Clare
"Prom Night" - Libba Bray

And the best part of this anthology? While you're asked as a reader to pick a side, the truth is, all of the stories warrant their own level of awesomeness, cleverness, and devourness. In other words--read this book! It is worth your time.

Now, are you Team Zombie or Team Unicorn? They're both vicious in their own ways, and all authors make a strong case for their team. For me, it's a draw!
