Dead Over Heels
Release Date: 09/29/14
Entangled Teen
269 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning…

Glenview, North Carolina. Also known―at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg―as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic…hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town.

At first, Ava’s certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone―or something―rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don’t even like each other fighting for their lives. But that’s the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you’ll meet your undead end. Or when you’ll fall dead over heels for a boy…

About the Author
Alison Kemper grew up in South Florida, the only girl on a street with eleven boys. She spent most of her childhood paddling a canoe through neighborhood canals and looking for adventure. She usually found it. Sometimes the police were involved. And large dogs. And one time, a very territorial snake. Now that she’s grown up, she lives in North Carolina and writes books. The books often include girls having adventures. With boys. Cute boys. And cute dogs too. But no cute snakes. Never cute snakes.

Her debut novel, Donna of the Dead, will be published by Entangled Teen in 2014 and followed by two companion books in the series. She loves to meet new people and talk books, so send her a friend request or connect with her on Twitter and Instagram.

{Rating} 5/5 - I loved it!

"Autumn sunlight streams through the kitchen of our vacation house." (page 1, line 1)
An exciting, action packed, fast read. I loved Alison Kemper's first book, Donna of the Dead, and enjoyed Dead over Heels just as much. Taking place in the same world -  a world where everyone is turning into a zombie - but with new characters, city girl Ava and country boy Cole, a new setting, the middle of the forest and new challenges.

City girl Ava is smart, indoorsy because she suffers from terrible allergies, and so not prepared to run through the woods and face the dangers within. But as they battle zombies, wildlife and brave heights, freezing temperatures and more she learns how strong and brave she is. I adored the banjo playing, hunting,'Trout Magnet' hat wearing, sweet and protective Cole. He has all the survival skills to keep them going through the forest and he's such a good guy that he keeps putting Ava's safety and comfort above his own.

Both Ava and Cole have their snobbish moments, thinking the worst of each other, but thrown together, having to work together to survive, they learn to appreciate each other and then begin to care for each other. The romance that develops is believable; despite all their differences they share the same determination and bravery. 

I can't wait to read the next book in her zombie series and anything else Alison Kemper writes.
