A deeply compelling, sparklingly original supernatural romance about discrimination, prejudice, the power of love and of life and death. A brilliant debut and yet the quality of the writing, both sharp and quirky and the original plot line makes it hard to believe it’s not written by a much more established author. So get in there now if you’re a teenager and want a truly compelling read that’s also a bit different.

Synopsis

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Phoebe is just your typical goth girl with a crush. The only problem is, it's on a dead guy. All over the tri-state area, something strange is happening. Teenagers who die aren't staying dead. They are coming back to life, but they come back different - they stutter and their reactions to everything are slower. Termed 'living impaired' or 'differently biotic', there are lots of conspiracy theories to explain this new phenomenon. But as their numbers keep on growing, so does the discomfort of the living people in the community. When Phoebe falls for Tommy Williams, her best friend and star of the football team, Adam, has conflicting emotions. And when Tommy decides to try out for the football team, it sets off a chain of events that escalates into deadly violence.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
