The Color of Fear

Title: Once Upon a Zombie, Book One

When Caitlin Fletcher’s mom disappeared (or left?) four years ago, Caitlin began suffering from breathless bouts of anxiety. Her new move to London, with her Dad and her brainiac sister, threatens to lead to more situations that will trigger panic. Now, she’s having anxiety over the possibility of having anxiety!
Caitlin’s life takes a turn for the bizarre when she’s tricked into climbing down a “rabbit hole” landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe —except it’s crawling with savage starving blood-eyed zombies. All the timeless fairy tale characters who once lived forever are now the living dead— think Snow White, Cinderella,
Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty. Even worse they’re famished. Definitely not the ideal situation for a vulnerable young girl prone to panic attacks.

My Review: Wow, I loved it. The idea was brilliant and even though I pretty much knew the end idea of it I just kept reading it. I couldn't put this novel down. Natalie was my favorite character this quirky and smart-ass younger sister was interesting. The Zombies were cool. Caitlin was so real, like who doesn't have at least one of her fears. The only thing that got me is that I'm a huge Alice fan and I expected her in more then just the end- since she is on this cover. But hey I bet she will be in book 2 now... LUVED it!
