I’ll keep this brief (that’s my style.) The author, Val O. Morris, is a long-time facebook friend and someone who runs in the same indie filmmaker circles as I do. I was happy to do a review of her book to help pump up her reviews.
This was a quick and enjoyable read, but I felt that it was geared more towards the 10-13 age range because of the characters. This is not a slight at the author. I felt like it was still very well done.
Here’s the synopsis if you think you might be interested:
“Baseball, video games, and… zombies. What could possibly go wrong?
Liam Walker wants is to be an all-star baseball player, but life has other plans. When his best friend, Katie, lends him a video game, his world literally changes. Transformed from a down on his luck boy next door into a zombie bashing video game character, Liam must learn to deal with bullies, new friends, and loss while attempting to learn the rules of the game and save everyone from a zombie apocalypse.
With time running out, can he navigate his way back to the real world before it’s too late? Or will the appeal of being a zombie slaying hero have him staying in the video game world forever?”
