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 like this series because it kind of deglamorizes zombies because it shows a different of being undead, you see them more as people.
I really liked the first book and this one was just as well written but was much sadder as we see Adam having to deal with becoming a zombie and also the injustice with which they are treated. This book made me think about the prejudice that the world has and is experiencing today. So in the end this book felt to me less like a supernatural romance than the other one. Also sometimes it was slow and I wanted the book to continue at a faster pace.
Overall a good book!
Also I don't really understand the cover very much because the girl in the coffin looks like Phoebe is discribed and I guess the football player is supposed to be Adam? I don't know because Phoebe does not die Adam does. So if you get it please explain it!
