Review: This is Not A Test by Courtney Summers (ARC)

This is Not a TestThis is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked this book. Sloane, the main character that we follow has had a rough life. Then, let's throw a zombie apocalypse into the fray and things just become more and more interesting.

We get to see a tiny glimpse into what it was like when the world began to end. More of the story is focused on Sloane and several other characters that find themselves banded together and holding their own in their abandoned high school. The characters share a lot of similar things with each other. The only difference between Sloane, Rhys, Cary, Trace, Grace and Harrison are, Sloane would rather die while the others would rather live.

I think Summers did a good job at showing us how people, even teens can work together and survive in a crisis. Things don't always go smoothly however and we get to see how they work together when the world they know slowly falls apart. Each and every one of them has things they have to struggle with and some make choices that they probably wouldn't if the world was not ending.

I really liked this book. The ending left me wondering what happened to the characters once we leave them. I'm wondering about the world as they know it and if there really is anything to go back to once we leave them. Great read!
