School’s out for the end of the world.
Anna and the Apocalypse is a horror comedy about a teenager who faces down a zombie apocalypse with a little help from her friends.
Anna Shepherd is a straight-A student with a lot going on under the surface: she’s struggling with her mom’s death, total friend drama, and the fallout from wasting her time on a very attractive boy. She’s looking forward to skipping town after graduation–but then a zombie apocalypse majorly disrupts the holidays season. It’s going to be very hard to graduate high school without a brain.
To save the day, Anna, her friends, and her frenemies will have to journey straight to the heart of one of the most dangerous places ever known, a place famous for its horror, terror, and pain…high school.
This novel is inspired by the musical feature film, Anna and the Apocalypse.
Anna and the Apocalypse is a quick-paced story about a teenager named Anna whose whole world is turned upside down when a zombie apocalypse occurs just a few days before Christmas. Throughout the story, Anna’s sarcastic and dark sense humor provides laugh out loud moments as she and her friends kill zombies and try to stay alive. Mix in the angst of teenage drama with horror of the walking dead and TADA, you have Anna and the Apocalypse.
Peppermint Hot Cocoa
And what pairs well with a zombie apocalypse book set during Christmas? Of course, a nice cup of hot cocoa!
- Water or Milk (you choose)
- Hot Cocoa Mix
- Peppermint Extract or Syrup
Be sure to follow the instructions on your hot cocoa packet/tin. I always warm up my water in the microwave. Stir the cocoa mix into the hot water. Next, I add a few small drops of peppermint extract. And don’t hold back on topping your cocoa with whipped cream, marshmallows, or candy cane pieces. Enjoy!
