From the window I can see her. 

She looks like she did yesterday. 

Same Clothes. 

Same Hair. 

But today her face is calm, dead calm. 

All their faces are dead calm until one of us makes a noise. 

The noise wakes them and then it starts. 

Their heads jerk to the right three times rapidly as they stand in the most awkward way. 

That's when we run. 

That's when we hide. 

That's how we stay alive until The Seventh Day! 

Silence is survival!

Story is about a young girl who starts the day off normally but ends it with her mother in the closet boarded up, the rest of the house boarded up, hiding and waiting for her dad to come. The world outside is rapidly consumed by a sickness, a plague if you will. Her name is Lou and she is instantly responsible for 3 little girls, a dog, and her own survival. She sets off, leaving the house when the infection gets inside and how she spends the next seven days will blow your mind.


~Shelly's 5 Star Review~

​Lou has to take care of her younger sister, Joey in the absence of her father and the death of her mother. The world is chaos in the aftermath of an "zombie apocalypse". Lou, Joey, neighbors, and friends are fighting for their lives.

I love that Lou was a 17 year old that acted brave but showed you that she was also scared it made her seem real. Joey, Lissie, and Julie were the young girls that were always protected by the older characters. Kyle was the funny cool guy that will melt your heart even in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Erin was the girl you wanted to hate but in reality she was the bada$$. Miles was who Lou had a crush on throughout high school but he views her as a sister. Lee has always lived in her sister, Erin's, shadow. She discovers she can protect herself throughout this book. All of the secondary characters contributed to this story and were well developed.

​This book is packed with danger at every turn. Lou flees to a cabin in the mountains trying to get away from the biters. You will be kept on the edge of your seat waiting to see who succumbs to the virus and who will escape. Lou and friends set across the USA trying to find her father to help them understand what is going on with the zombie apocalypse. Along the way they will forge close friendship and even discover love.

I will be honest in that I was skeptical to read this book. I am not a horror and blood and guts type of person. A book lover friend read it and loved it so I took a chance. I am so happy that I did. This book was so well written that I found myself continuing to turn the pages to that I could see what was going to happen. I am happy to say I have one clicked more of Tara Brown's books. The ending does wrap up the story but does let you know there is more in the future. Can't wait to read to read the next book.

I received a gift copy in exchange for an honest review. Read and Reviewed for Stories and Swag Blog.

AE Watson (Tara Brown)

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird. I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing. I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy! I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order. I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. Kidding, it's called The End of Me and it's badass and awesome. It's a start to a massive series. I am jazzed about it. I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time. Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.
