It’s not easy being young and smart.
Alex is a twelve year old with an eagle eye and a wit to match. She’s been watching everyone at school for the last few days like an eagle… or maybe even a hawk, and something’s not right. Everyone is acting weird. They’re all starting to say the same things, wear the same clothes, do bad dance routines in the corridors for no reason at all and meet up after school to drink decaf-mocha-latte-soy-frappucinos. The writing’s on the wall. She knows what’s happening. They’re all turning into Zombies.
And when the Night of the Zombies – that fateful occurrence that happens once every 200 hundred years – is finally upon them, Alex and her buddies know what they have to do next. They’ll have to bunker down and prepare for the worst, cause they’ll have to fight with all their might the zombies of tonight.
There’ll be craziness, zombie dance routines, high drama, low comedy and maybe even some creatively exploding body bits. …The Zombies of Tonight asks what it means to be an individual, and how can you stand up for what you believe in. Especially if everyone around you has become mind numbing Zombies.
