Lovereading view...

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.


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.


'Stephanie Meyer meets John Green in Debut author Water's wry, orginial supernatural romance, which blends sensitivity and deadpan humor reflect a culture clash on both sides of the living spectrum.' Fiction, YA
