Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb

Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb - MJ Ware Check out my original review here

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was a really fun book to read. It was amusing, entertaining and silly but still had a great story line that kept me hooked. It had the suspense of wondering if they would survive all of the zombies, but it wasn't too scary for kids to enjoy. I think the book had a great balance between suspense and humor.

The book also had two short stories at the end, which I found very entertaining, espeically the one about the hobgoblin.

CHARACTERS: I liked all of the characters that were in this book. I would have liked to learn more about each of the characters and their background (particularly Kali) but this is a quick read geared at middle grade readers who are probably not that interested in large amounts of detail. Nate, our main character, and Misty are best friends with hints of more. I would have liked to see a little bit more of a romance develop, nothing monumental because they are kids and this is a kid's book, but maybe just a little bit more acknowledgment of their feelings towards one another, even if only in their own heads and not out loud to each other.

COVER: The cover goes really well with the story. It incorporates a few different parts of the story and ties in perfectly.

*I received a copy of this book from the author for review.
