REVIEW + Giveaway: Dead Over Heels by Alison Kemper



Dead Over Heels
Release Date: 09/29/14
Entangled Teen
269 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning…

Glenview, North Carolina. Also known―at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg―as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic…hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town.

At first, Ava’s certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone―or something―rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don’t even like each other fighting for their lives. But that’s the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you’ll meet your undead end. Or when you’ll fall dead over heels for a boy…

Dead Over Heels was a fun, flesh eating zombie book. Once I got into it I couldn't put it down. But y'all know how I love my zombies!!

Ava's parents had bought a summer home in the mountains of North Carolina. While her parents were out on a supply run the worst thing that could happen did. The undead decided to start feasting on the living. When Cole her "redneck" neighbor that she couldn't stand, came knocking on her door to warn her that undead were in her front yard, she grabbed her purse and coat and ran into the cold woods that held so many things that could kill her and I'm not just talking about the zombies. With the help of Cole, they survived in the forest making their way to her mom, dad and safety in town. Along the way the sweetest love story unfolded.

Even though Ava was a city girl, I loved that she became a strong heroine. She reached down deep in grave circumstances and pulled out her BAD "A" self and took on those freakin' zombies, even when Cole couldn't help. Cole was a God send to her. He saved her life more than once. You could gradually see "in her mind" that even in crazy circumstances she was falling for that  "redneck" young man and he was for her.

I would love to see this book get a sequel and hear about their adventures later on. Dead Over Heels was a fun, fresh, zombie novel. I recommend it for any zombie addicts like myself. Because I devour anything zombie. The more brain eating the better. :) 
4 Stars!! Loved it!
