The Last Kids On EarthBy Max Brallier, illustrated by Douglas Holgate
Jack is a thirteen-year-old foster kid who has bounced from house to house and school to school. He’s never had a real family or real friends. When he finally makes friends with Quint, a geeky science-type, they get hit with the zombie apocalypse!
Everyone leaves town or gets zombified. But somehow, Jack gets left behind.
But Jack has a treehouse, some weapons, and a generator to power his video games. Still, he doesn’t want to have to deal with the monsters and zombies alone…
Then he discovers that Quint has been left behind too. He’s got a lab and lots of ideas on ways to fight monsters.
And there are other kids too. They’ll never go back to the way things were, but if they band together and fight, maybe they can make life after the zombie apocalypse a little better.
The Last Kids On Earth is a chapter book/graphic novel combo. And although it’s about the end of the world, it’s funny. So if you want a light, easy-to-read book about the end of the world, read on!
