Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Mayberry

To Be Published on October 5, 2010
Summary from Simon & Schuster Fall 2010 Catalog: In the zombie-infested, post-apocalyptic America where Benny Imura lives, every teenager must find a job by the time they turn fifteen or get their rations cut in half. Benny doesn’t want to apprentice as a zombie hunter with his boring older brother Tom, but he has no choice. He expects a tedious job whacking zoms for cash—but what he gets is a vocation that will teach him what it means to be human.
Acclaimed horror author Jonathan Maberry makes his young adult debut with this detail-rich depiction of a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has fallen, the dead have risen, and danger is always imminent.
I didn't really like reading about zombies until I read The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. But, as soon as I was done, I was firmly on team zombie. Rot & Ruin sounds like it will be a great mix of dystopian and paranormal. Plus the heading to Rot & Ruin in the catalog called it "An action-packed novel with ample humor, a little romance - and LOTS of zombies." Sounds pretty perfect to me.
