THE ZERO DEGREE ZOMBIE ZONE is a fun, quick-paced read that keeps readers engaged and laughing. The story is both strange and familiar, with characters navigating the social minefields of school and then suddenly falling into a world where a horrific ice monster is threatening them and Earth with a frozen zombie invasion. Readers want to root for Bakari, and author Patrik Henry Bass does an excellent job of creating an entertaining story featuring believable characters with nuanced personalities.

Bass mostly breaks out of the stereotypical and popular kid-versus-morally-superior-misfits scenario that's common in kids' literature, though the overweight, bumbling, sidekick/best friend trope does make an unwelcome appearance. Overall, kids and parents will enjoy the action, message, and story.
