His new zombie side effects are claws that grow out of his feet and hands. The only way to cut them is to chew them off. Gross. The school bully is filming a new TV show in which kids have to eat bugs if they lose whatever game he chooses to play. The school staff is even supporting it!
He spends his time plotting how to make a break from camp to the video game challenge while also dodging anything that will out him as a zombie. We also finally hear his theory on how he and his mom were turned into zombies, which was missing from the first story.
I didn't like this book as much as the first one, but it was still entertaining. I think kids are going to enjoy it no matter what. There is a third installment due out called Walking Dad that looks promising.
