The Last Kids on Earth

The Last Kids on Earth - Max Brallier
I remember thinking, ‘UM… THIS CAN’T BE REAL. IT MUST BE A PRANK. A JOKE. A REALITY SHOW. RIGHT?!?’
So I said to Quint, ‘UM… THIS CAN’T BE REAL. IT MUST BE A PRANK. A JOKE. A REALITY SHOW. RIGHT?!?’
But it wasn’t.

Meet Jack Sullivan. Zombie hunter, monster slayer, late-blooming, slow-developing 13-year-old. He’s riding out the monster apocalypse from his tree house, and is doing his best to keep busy.

He’s set himself achievements, like:
Mad Hatter! – Steal the hats off five zombies.
Outrun! – Beat a zombie in a footrace.
Say Cheese! – Take a photo with someone you knew before they got zombified.
House Hunter – Explore 50 different abandoned houses.
And, most importantly:
Damsel in Distress – Find and rescue love interest, June Del Toro.
Of course, he needs to get back in touch with his best (only) friend Quint, and avoid being eaten by Blarg – the giant, intelligent monster that is hunting him down – but those are just details.

He’s Jack Sullivan, Post-Apocalyptic Action Hero. He’s got this.
