The first part of seventh grade was rough on Jed, but things are looking up now that Christmas is almost here. As with past Christmases, Jed asks for the one thing he's always wanted--a dog--and again, his parents tell him they're not ready. But fate has a different plan when Jed sees a dog get run over by a car. Then, it happens. Jed suddenly has a pet, Tread, a zombie dog bearing his namesake--a tire tread down his back. Jed may have gained a dog, but he loses his best friend Luke, who fears the way Jed created his undead pet.
When Jed returns to school, he finds a mysterious group called the No Zombies Now Network spreading rumors of the dangers the undead pose to normal people. Forced to disprove Hollywood stereotypes, Jed has his work cut out for him as stories of a zombie dog begin to circulate. Jed could be expelled if he can't expose the NZN Network as a fraud. Jed needs help from his kind of girlfriend Anna, especially after he discovers Luke has joined the shadowy group.
Once again navigating the treacherous waters of middle school, Jed does his best to stay in one piece. Only this time he'll need even more duct tape and staples than usual.
I couldn’t pass up reading the second book in this series. If you haven’t read the first one you should its really cute and holds a very strong message about bullies and being different. This book has that same message and poor Jed just wants to be normal, and he wants a dog. When he creates an undead dog things get a little crazy for him and a new organization has popped up called the No Zombies Now Network. You can’t Jeb just live a normal life and why do his limbs always keeps falling off 😉
I love Jed, he is just so funny and I really do laugh out loud and most of the stuff in the book as well as when his leg or arm falls off. Robbie is still a jerk but you find out a lot more about him and his out of school life. I really think he likes Jed more than he makes it seem like. However he still throws him in the garbage cans on Taco Day. Anna and Luke are also back but Jed’s relationship with Luke is a little strained and he can’t seem to figure out what happened.
The story is fun and hilarious, with all that is going on it’s hard to put this down, so much fun to read and one of my favorite series, I can’t wait to read the next one and see what Jed will get into next.
A little slow build up in the middle but over all this is a really get book that I new would be a good 4 star. Something I think kids and adults would really enjoy!
