The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning…

Glenview, North Carolina. Also known―at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg―as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic…hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town.

At first, Ava’s certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone―or something―rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don’t even like each other fighting for their lives. But that’s the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you’ll meet your undead end. Or when you’ll fall dead over heels for a boy…
Fun and addictive, Dead Over Heels is a light and comical read of a zombie apocalypse that will be guaranteed to make you laugh out loud! But yes, this cover is certainly not a favourite of mine as it is rather cheesy.

When Ava moves to Carolina for her holiday, the last thing she expects is to have to go outside. Let alone to stay outside whilst the apocalypse is happening around her. The person who comes and saves her: Cole. Reserved and wanting nothing-to-do with Ava, he must reluctantly help find safety… preferably before the zombies find them.

Our protagonists Cole and Ava were fun, witty and comical; their comebacks and actions will certainly make you laugh-out-loud. Additionally I was pleased we were able to see the events from both perspectives, allowing the reader to fully explore their characters, and not just the way the other perceives them to be.

The plot of this novel was simple and a little cheesy, but thats what I loved most! It was an easy, quick and light read that would certainly make you smile and cheer-you-up if you were in a bad mood. Kemper's writing is incredibly addictive and comical, I really enjoyed it! There was also splashes of danger that kept up the pace allowing you to imagine the scenes.

A light, fun and funny read that will certainly leave a smile on your face.
