The reasons why the characters are so young is a bit hard to swallow, but other than their age this didn't feel like YA, just easy enjoyable reading. About death and gore and monsters.

When reading this book I followed the schedule that the author had created for the read-along which really made it easy to get through. Something that I found interesting when reading this book was that there were no chapters but instead it was written in parts. The fact that it was written in parts really made it so that there was not much to distract you as you read. Each section was completely new and seperate from the others so instead of having chapters that may have confused you because of the multiple perspectives it was a smooth reading.

Something else I found cool and different was the amount of perspectives
that were included in this book. At first this made it very confusing but once
I got the characters names and roles down the multiple perspectives added to
the mystery of the book. I really liked how this book kept you guessing and
wondering about who to trust in this story. As a reader you always want to
trust the protagonist but in this case the further you read the more you aren't
sure if she's the one to trust.

It was a fun read! Who doesn't want to read a book about horrifically mutated space zombies? I also really appreciated how it didn't end with a happy ending necessarily, but left room for a sequel. Some of the plot points were passed over to quickly and some were predictable, but overall it was a fun read and I'd recommend it.
