Zombie Baseball Beatdown by Paolo Bacigalupi, 304 pages, read by Angie, on 10/02/2013

Zombies rule! Especially cow head zombies. Rabi, Miguel and Joe are friends who play on the same baseball team. They live in a small Ohio town with a big meat packing plant. Milrow Meat Solutions is pumping their cows full of all kinds of things, which have the effect of creating zombies. The boys have to battle the zombies and evil plant executives to survive the summer.

This book was full of humor and fun and zombies! It also had some serious messages about immigration and domestic abuse and corporations. At its heart it is a story about friendship and what you will do for your friends. All set against the backdrop of the zombie apocalypse. I loved it!
