  Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They’re the misfits and the troublemakers―the ones who jump their high school’s fence to skip class regularly. So when a deadly virus breaks out, they’re the only ones with a chance of surviving.
The virus turns Brian’s classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don’t die easily. The whole school goes on lockdown, but Brian and his best friend, Chad, are safe (and stuck) in the theater department―far from Brian’s sister, Kenzie, and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids Brian had never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won’t be easy, and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates. 

Praise for SICK
"The gore and action will leave enthralled readers thrilled and then sated with each kill on either side."
Booklist

"Between the pacing and the heroes’ salty, blue language (full of lovingly creative, genital-inspired insults), reluctant readers who love zombies will devour it, right up to the abrupt end."
Kirkus Reviews

"Sick is well written, with great detail, even if it is a little gory."
VOYA Magazine

About the Author:

Tom Leveen is the author of Party, Zero, and manicpixiedreamgirl. Zero was named to YALSA’s list of Best Fiction for Young Adults. This is his first foray into the horror genre. He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

From Booklist:

“High school is full of monsters.” With a tagline like that it’s easy to guess where the zombie metaphor lives in Leveen’s first foray into horror. In the diverse, riot-prone, gang-dominated halls of Phoenix Metro High School, it’s not that hard to see how a zombie outbreak might begin without much fanfare. For Brian, a senior, the only people who matter are his friends; his sister, Mackenzie; and his ex, Laura. When Brian finds himself holed up in the school’s theater department while ravenous, geode-encrusted infected students run amok, killing or infecting everyone in sight, he, with the aid of his best friend and some drama kids, attempts an intense rescue operation for Mackenzie and Laura. The gore and action will leave enthralled readers thrilled and then sated with each kill on either side. However, Leveen’s violent romp isn’t without conscience. Community, humanity, and mortality all come under the microscope in this surprisingly earnest effort. Grades 9-12. --Courtney Jones

Book Description Abrams, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They're the misfits, the troublemakers -- the ones who jump their High School's electrified fence to skip school regularly. So when the virus breaks out, they're the only ones with a chance of surviving. The virus turns Brian's classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don't die easily. In other words: Zombies. The whole school goes on lockdown and the military surrounds the fence, and Brian and his best friend Chad are safe (and stuck) in the theater department -- far from Brian's sister, Kenzie and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids who he'd never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won't be easy and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates. In a world turned upside down, who exactly are the real monsters?.
