I despise zombie books because we all know once you're dead you're dead. So I wouldn't call the changed ones in this book zombies because they didn't actually die.

Ashes by Ilsa J. Bick is an excellent read. Fast paced and full of action it keeps you wanting to turn the pages and find out what is happening next.

The story is of Alex a young lady of 16 who has an inoperable and terminal brain tumor. She has left her home with her aunt to honor the final wishes of her parents when the world is zapped with an EMP attack.

Everything changes and the story line moves into a vast array of characters and situations that will keep you reading late into the night.

The only bad part of this book is that it's a trilogy and the second and third books are forthcoming--I hate waiting almost as much as I hate zombies.
