A modern-day Alice in Wonderland meets the undead…
Alice in Zombieland, the first book in The White Rabbit Chronicles, introduces readers to a world newly overrun by zombies...and the one girl who may be able to save mankind.
She won''t rest until she''s sent every walking corpse back to its grave.
Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. But that''s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real.
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn''t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
After a car crash claims her closest kin on her 16th birthday, Ali winds up living with her grandparents and adjusting to a new high school. Soon the troubled teen discovers her superstitious father wasn’t nuts—the ghostly zombies he feared really do exist. The first book in the White Rabbit Chronicles—Gena Showalter’s young adult romance series—gleefully unites sarcastic humor, teenage yearning, and frantic combat. Steeped in a fresh and unconventional supernatural mythology, Alice in Zombieland introduces a determined heroine who bands together with a ferocious rebel and his friends to dispatch ghostly enemies.
"If they see you, they will chase you. And if they catch you, they will devour you." Alice Bell's father warned her about the monsters that come out at night, but Ali doesn't believe him until she sees zombies kill her family. After relocating to a new town, 16-year-old Ali is relieved to discover that she isn't entirely on her own: it turns out that local bad boy Cole Holland and his rough crowd hunt zombies. In this kickoff to the White Rabbit Chronicles, Ali works to keep her remaining loved ones safe, decode ghostly warnings, learn new tricks to take down evil spirits, and figure out whether she's ready to get involved with the hottest guy she's ever known. Balancing graphic zombie fighting and complicated romantic relationships, Showalter (the Intertwined series) fleshes out this action-packed paranormal story with a giddy focus on the push-and-pull attraction between Ali and Cole and the nastier side of the high school social scene. The result is a zippy story with crossover appeal that highlights the power of guilt, faith, and self-confidence. Ages 14 up.
Unique Theme in the Zompoc Genre
My daughter loved this book so I had to check it out. What an interesting take on the whole zombie idea. I did enjoy the story, but I think I’ve been reading a little too much YA lately because it didn’t keep my interest as much as I was expecting. I did enjoy it enough that I plan to check out the next book at some point.
I am 100% obsessed with this series. Once I finished Alice in Zombieland, I immediately went and bought Through the Zombie Glass!! They are both books you can not put down!! I'm so excited for The Queen of Zombie Hearts to be released, I've already pre-ordered it! Did I mention that I've only known about the books for a few days now, that's how quickly you'll fall in love with all the characters. It's safe to say these books are a giant mix of emotions and the story lines are to die for. Absolutely recommend reading!
I was a skeptic at first to reading this even though I love zombie literature feeling that it would be more cutesy. I was Wrong. This book had me from the very start and I could not put it down. It was fast paced and riveting, hard to put down. Love how the characters really interacted and it wasn't just words they seemed to come alive. It was as if you were part of the story on the sidelines watching and at times you wanted to be helping. Beautifully written.
