This is told by different viewpoints at the beginning that all meet each other at the end. Basically, they're having a seance on this tv show, Sunrise. Phoenix's dad is one of the people who is holding hands. They call to the dead, and then the unthinkable happens. All the dead people from their graves starts coming out and they're empty. It starts in New York but spreads to other states nearby. They go back to where their family is but then they also want to eat them. Phoenix is with a group of people who don't know if they should break apart the 5 people or not. Tania is with her friend Derek when they hear the news and try to escape. Matt and Noah who go to the same University and really don't like each other, go to a professor's funeral and witness him coming back. Sara is Matt's sister, and is with her dad and Zach in their house. Jack is a gangbanger who wants to run away to Canada, but ends up going back to where it all started. While the zombies are killing everyone, these different stories tell how they managed to survive and how theyall came together to go the studio and stop the uprising. This was a really good book! zombies again I know. It got pretty detailed and gross how the zombies like ate out people's stomachs and arms. Gross! But it was really good how the different viewpoints were showing how the whole story came together. Definitely intense!
