Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb

Note: This book was sent to me by the author for an honest review. Because this book is a Children's book about 14 year olds, I decided to have my 14 year old son read it and give me his review. The things he says and suggests are his opinion and not mine. LOLZ! That means if you let your 7 year old child read this book and it gives them nightmares... just remember - Mickey said it was ok... not me ;)

Title: Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb
Author: M.J.A. Ware
Published: September 5th 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads

When life gives you lemons, kill zombies -- turns out lemon juice neutralizes the undead.

After a failed attempt at running away, best friends Nathan and Misty return home expecting to face angry parents. Instead, they discover the military has destroyed the bridges out of their rural town and everyone's fled--except a small horde of the living dead. The stress of flesh-eating zombies may be more than their already strained relationship can handle.

Even with the help of the town geek and lemonade-powered Super-Soakers, there's not enough time to squeeze their way out of this sticky mess. Unless the trio eradicates the zombie infestation, while avoiding the deadly zombie snot, the military will blow the town, and them, to pulp.

Their only shot is something with a lot more punch. Something like the Super Zombie Juice Mega Bomb. But even if their friendship survives, there's another problem: Someone has to lure the undead into the trap.

A Review from a fourteen year old
It was about a zombie outbreak that infects the tri-county area that Nate and Misty live in.

Nate and Misty sneak out the house to go camping and they see the mayor and he's apparently infected and they don't know it. And the mayor is about to bite Misty and Nate stops him but the mayor bites Nate in the leg but doesn't get infected which in my opinion was kind of stupid.

They go back to town to see if it's evacuated then they go to all these other places and then the go to Nate's house to get the Mustang that his Dad has and then they drive to a strip mall for supplies and then they go to Wal-mart.

While in Wal-mart they stay there for a couple days and find Cali who is a boy which is weird, and he joins them and tells them that the government has plans to bomb the place.

Mickey's Thoughts

How did you like the story?
There were no funny parts at all? I did like it but it would have been better with some funny parts. Younger people might think that it is funny but I didn't think so.

How old of a kid do you think you have to be to enjoy this book?
I would think at least a seven year old.

Were there any cuss words?
No cuss words, they say things like HOLY COW and stuff.

Does the cover make sense to the story?
They were never trapped at a cemetery. And Cali isn't there and you only see a bit of Nate. THey only went to a cemetery once to get a fire truck.

Was there any romance?
Some kissing on a cheek and crying on a shoulder

Do you think that the author was able to depict the average 14 year old?
I felt the characters were more dumb than a 14 year old, at times. I think they acted more like 6th graders.

Do you think this book is more of a boy book or a girl book?
More boy but it could be for both.

If a sequel is written would you read it?

Were there any scary parts?
No, I thought it would be scarier but it wasn't very detailed at all when 'scary' parts happened.

Do you think this kind of zombie outbreak could happen in real life?
No, this kind of stuff only happens in stories.

Would you watch a cartoon about this book?
Probably not a cartoon series but I would a movie.

Explain what a super zombie juice mega bomb is.
It's the thing that kills the zombies... like big time. If I told you then that would wreck the book.


  1. As a 14 year old girl, I quite enjoyed this. These kids were 14? I missed that. I do agree with most of this. Great review, Mickey!

  2. I don't know how Mickey figured that out but he said they were. It must say that in there. He said it doesn't say it till towards the middle or end.

    Glad you enjoyed them. I was curious what a girl would think about them ;)
