Those looking for a fast paced Zombie read will enjoying this young adult novel. Titchenell has humor, wit, and lots of action packed zombie slaying. I really enjoyed the main character Cassie who is a zombie slayer that is helping a friend rescue her sister in New York. Don’t think that Confessions has all fun and action packed moments as it also has it’s serious ones. Young adult books have really exploded and the zombie genre is also one of those that’s exploded with it. It was a fun read with enjoyable and relateable characters.
The world is Cassie Fremont’s playground. Her face is on the cover of every newspaper, she has no homework, no curfew, and no credit limit, and she spends her days traveling the country with her friends, including a boy who would flirt with death just to turn her head. Life is just about perfect—except that those newspaper headlines are about her bludgeoning her crush to death with a paintball gun, she has to fight ravenous walking corpses every time she steps outside, and one of her friends is still missing, trapped somewhere in the distant, practically impassable wreckage of Manhattan. Still, Cassie’s an optimist. More prone to hysterical laughter than hysterical tears, she’d rather fight a corpse than be one, and she won’t leave a friend stranded when she can simply take her road trip to impossible new places to find her, even if getting there means admitting to that boy that she might just love him, too. Skillfully blending effective horror with unexpected humor, this diary-format novel is a fast-paced and heartwarming read.
