Review - Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb by MJ A Ware @MJAWare

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb by MJ A Ware

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb is a horror novel for young adults. The author offers this synopsis:
After a failed attempt at running away, best friends Nathan and Misty return home expecting to face angry parents. Instead, they discover the military has destroyed the bridges out of their rural town and everyone's fled—except a small horde of the living dead. The stress of flesh-eating zombies may be more than their already strained relationship can handle.
Even with the help of the town geek and lemonade-powered Super-Soakers, there's not enough time to squeeze their way out of this sticky mess. Unless the trio eradicates the zombie infestation, while avoiding the deadly zombie snot, the military will blow the town, and them, to pulp.
Yes, the title is long and a little over the top. But it fits the story, it's a zombie book after all. It's a YA novel and it is very respectful to young people's sensibilities. No cursing or strong language and no explicit gore or violence. I didn't miss a thing with it having safe language. It does have elements of good story. I am glad that wasn't missing.

Ware follows the basic zombie story formula. No surprises. A lot of running and evading and zombie killing. The characters are interesting to read. The twist in this story is that the characters need to rid the town of the zombies or escape, or the military will rid them all, zombie or not. That's a lot of pressure. The twist becomes even twistier when they discover that a change in pH will destroy the zombies. That's an easy thing to do one on one but you need a Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb to cleanse a whole town.

It's a quick and easy read. The name and the plot is enough of a reason to give it a chance if zombie stories are what you enjoy.
