Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
For zombie fans, it's hard to find a better story than Amanda Hocking's Hollowland, which features a rogue teen protagonist named Remy who's trying to desperately find her brother in the never-ending post-apocalyptic wasteland. Together with a few tag-alongs, she encounters loosed zoo animals, shady cults, and packs of brain-hungry undead.
I just finished this book not too long ago, and I stand by my convictions that Amanda Hocking is a great story teller. This one has got a lot of action, some interesting twists, and characters who both fit into an easily recognized mold and manage to find innovative ways to break out of it.
If there's one thing this book manages to do, it's wow readers. Only 13 of 127 reviews are less than 4 stars. The writing does leave something to be desired, but it's obviously not stopped people from getting into the story.
