Sabrina's Word Wednesday - Survivor and the Zombie Apocalypse

Sabrina's Word Wednesday - Survivor

Survivor. We all know what that word means in terms of the zombie apocalypse; someone who survives, i.e. doesn't get dead. (And apparently a zombie apocalypse was just announced in Montana when someone hacked a TV broadcast...) 

But there is a deeper meaning to the word survivor, as well. In C.A. Verstraete's upcoming YA zombie story, GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie, sixteen year old Rebecca not only survives becoming a zombie, she has to continue being a teenage girl, which is hard enough to survive on its own. 

Throw in missing moms, strange and frightening changes, weird diets, and meeting (and crushing on) another part-Z survivor, Gabe, and it's easy to understand how Becca is more than just a regular, run-of-the-mill zombie survivor.

For more information on GIRL Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie, check out this interview with C.A. Verstraete. 

What would be the hardest thing about trying to survive in a zombie apocalypse?
