Eat, Brains, Love by Jeff Hart

Stars: 4.5 out of 5
Back of the book
A laugh-out-loud funny, surprisingly romantic, zombie road trip novel filled with heart—and brains. Eat, Brains, Love is perfect for fans of Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies.
The good news: Jake's dream girl, Amanda Blake, finally knows his name.
The bad news: it's because they both contracted a mysterious zombie virus and devoured the brains of half their senior class. Now Jake and Amanda are on the run from Cass, a teen psychic sent by the government's top-secret Necrotic Control Division to track them down. As Jake and Amanda deal with the existential guilt of eating their best friends and set off in search of a cure for the zombie virus, Cass struggles with a growing psychic dilemma of her own—one that will lead all three of them on an epic journey across the country and make them question what it means to truly be alive. Or undead.

My Review
Jake was a regular high school boy. He loved video games and getting high with his friends until one day when he ate half of his friends in the school cafeteria. Now he is on the run, he is a zombie fugative and his getaway partner is the hottest girl in school Amanda Blake who ate the other half of his class. Some how they have contacted a zombie virus with a hope of a cure they head to Iowa, but their way there is be a difficult one.

Meet Cass the youngest member of the NCD squad, She is a telepath and is on a mission to track and kill zombies. Those zombies in particular Jake and Amanda. There is humourous banter between Jake and Amanda and even funnier thoughts from Jake.
The story is told from the points of view from both Cass and Jake. So we get both the outlaw and the tracker views and the choices and thoughts they make. The cliff hanger at the end of the book has me amped for the next and to figure out what really is in Iowa and how Cass teaming up with the zombies will change the dynamics.
