Anna and the Apocalypse by Turner and Waldo - OPTIONAL

Anna and the Apocalypse by Katharine Turner with Barry Waldo, 262 pages.  Imprint (Macmillan), 2018.  $11. 

Language: R (45+ swears, 15 ‘f’); Mature Content: R; Violence: R (blood and gore fest)



After fighting with her dad about her life after high school graduation, Anna is prepared for a sucky Christmas in her small Scottish village.  She is not, however, prepared for the zombie apocalypse! Now she and her best friend, along with the recalcitrant Canadian exchange Steph, and their buddy Chris, are stuck in the local bowling alley, fighting for their lives, while most of their loved ones are at high school – dealing with the zombies, but even worse, the megalomaniac vice principal. 

Turner takes the Christmas slasher movie to another level with the zombie apocalypse.  Fans of Shawn of the Dead will feel right at home with the action and the high gore level.
