Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters

Title: Kiss of Life

Author: Daniel Waters

Published: Simon & Schuster Children's, 2009

Pages: 320

Series: Book 2, Generation Dead

Summary: May contain spoilers! The phenomenon that's been sweeping the country seems to be here to stay. Not only are the teenagers who have come back from their graves still here, but newlydeads are being unearthed all the time. While scientists look for answers and politicians take their stands, the undead population of Oakville have banded together in a group they're calling the Sons of Romero, hoping to find solidarity in segregation. 
Phoebe Kendall may be alive, but she feels just as lost and alone as her dead friends. Just when she reconciled herself to having feelings for a zombie -- her Homecoming date Tommy Williams -- her friend Adam is murdered taking a bullet that was meant for her. Things get even more confusing when Adam comes back from the grave. Now she has romantic interest in two dead boys; one who saved her life, and one she can't seem to live without.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: Kiss of Life starts off where Generation Dead ends and it is really really sad.  I think that the whole tone of the series changed with Kiss of Life and there were so many moments in Kiss of Life that I cried over.

I loved Adam and Phoebe and Karen in this one.  All three of them are so great and I just think that they were all strong and realistic characters.

I think that Kiss of Life brings up some really important issues and I think it is a well written and highly entertaining read.  If you haven’t read it or Generation Dead yet, then you should soon!
