Suzanne Park's charming romantic comedy highlights the importance of communication, integrity, and perseverance. Nate and Kate are smart, driven, and ambitious teens searching for The Perfect Escape and seeking acceptance from their families. And while there are many hilarious and lighthearted moments, especially during the action-packed zombie survival adventure, the book also thoughtfully explores classism, privilege, and family expectations, making it a must-read for teens.
