Plot Summary of Dia of the Dead:

Protecting Romero High from all things supernaturally spooky as Dia Muerto is a tough gig for sixteen-year-old actress Dia Summers, but it’s nothing compared to protecting the ones she loves from real, live—well, formerly alive—zombies. Unlike the zombies that shambled around on set, the real deal don’t follow a script.

At the majorly important birthday party of her boss’ daughter, Dia experiences a series of potentially career-ruining social disasters. Before the night is over, she soon discovers that the possible cancellation of her show isn’t her biggest worry.

Armed with what they can find around Bixby Studios, Dia and her friends band together to find out why everyone they know has begun popping up as gray-skinned, black-eyed, limb-nomming zombies. With the ailment spreading, time is running out before Dia is swept up in Hollywood’s latest trend.

My Review of Dia of the Dead by Brit Brinson 

A fun, easy read and I really enjoyed it! especially since I’m a huge zombie fan! Dia of the Dead was great from start to finish.  The titular Dia was a likable character and to the author’s credit maintained that likeable personality throughout the book even when faced with some terrible situations. Which may sound like small potatoes but I assure you, is quite important and increasingly rare. The very clear origins of the zombies only lends to the solid world that was built.

How the zombie virus spreads is also more imaginative than most YA novels are especially because the author explains how it happens. All of the characters are very well developed and the plot is very exciting and surprising. The author doesn’t go the easy route in developing her story and you will be surprised at who gets zombified and who doesn’t.

No spoilers but the action scenes and the development of Dia’s character were the best parts of the story. Dia of the Dead is a zombie story that stays true to its audience without dumbing things down and I can’t tell Brit Brinson how grateful I am for that, but Thank you, Dear Author nonetheless!!  If you love The Walking Dead and my personal favorite Z-Nation then this is the book for you!!
