Contaminated

Contaminated
by Em Garner

New York : Egmont USA, 2013.
30 pages. Young Adult Horror.
 Velvet is doing her best to take care of her younger sister until she can find their mother. She has had to quit school to work and they live in a rundown government assisted apartment complex. Obviously, life is far from ideal. Their mother is one of the contaminated. One of the innocent victims of tainted protein water which turned them into aggressive, hard-to-kill zombies. The government has been working hard to cure or at least contain the problem. Velvet's mother is finally coming home, but their new life together is not quite what any of them expected.

As usual, I wanted to like this a lot more than I did. Some of the characters were great, others annoying. Circumstances were a little too convenient sometimes for Velvet and her family. The main storyline is interesting, especially the twist at the end. So I will be reading the next one to find out what happens.
