Generation Dead: Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters

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.

I didn't like this book as much as the first, but I love the cover more. This was mostly about Phoebe learning to cope with her friend's "sort of" death, and helping him to learn to live again, "differently biotic" style. Although the writting and plot was amazing, it wasn't as exciting as the first, but I was happy with the ending. In this sequal, Phoebe learns to be a friend, learn when to walk away, and love again. She makes a hard decision from her heart, hoping she chose the right one, and making herself see who she truly loves. Read it. x.
