Rew’s working on a new project now He thinks his team is developing a spiffy new strain of corn but Hannah’s classmate and her mysterious companion disagree They think he’s cooking up the end of the world When one of Drew’s team members disappears he begins to suspect that they might be right Soon they’re all in far over their h Not another Zompocalypse book? Yes yes and no The End of Ordinary is a winking satire of technophilia the upper crust set and of course zombie movies Ashton sets it in his world of UnAltered vs Engineered; a battle between those with special genetic modifications for either standards of beauty or to achieve peak athletic performance This is a world that's already seen deadly conflicts pitting human against human So what happens when high school students stumble over a mad billionaire's solution to the problem of racial hatred? They try to stop it of course But this zombie outbreak is possibly the strangest one yet For Hannah her dad Drew mom Kara and her friends Jordan Devon and Micah surviving the Slutty Zombie Apocalypse is a bizarre adventureI found the book to be a fun light read The content while dealing with sex murder and several other distasteful things never becomes graphic enough to be bad for the teen reader crowds but I'd also say parental guidance is necessary The key characters are well fleshed out but several peripherals in the story just casually blow away once they're bit is done which seems odd It's not perfect There's areas where it lags I largely think most of the precourser to the apocalypse could've been cut The characters sound like authentic teens It's a mixed bag Not that great story but still well done characterization and an odd but deft turn at the zombie outbreak plot Worth your time

The End of OrdinaryEads with corporate goons and government operatives hunting them and millions of lives in the balanceEnergetic and bitingly satirical The End of Ordinary is a riveting near future thriller that asks an important uestion if we can’t get along when our differences are barely skin deep what happens when they run all the way down to the bon Ashton does a really good job handling multiple first person viewpoints something I normally dislike immensely in a novel He also asks some very interesting and appropriate uestions about race and class without being too heavy handedThe novel isn't uite as funny or clever as 3 Days in April And there are a few characters and events that feel very contrived Also a couple of the viewpoints are from characters that are needed for the story but don't move it along Those factors hold it back from 5 stsrs but it is definitely worth reading
