If you like supernatural horror stories, you're in luck because there are finally books about the undead for kids! Whether you like the all-out fright of kids being chased by rotting zombies or more of a kid-zombie-fighter story, check out the books below.
Dead City by James Ponti - Molly goes to a special science school in New York City and spends her free time hanging out in the city morgue (her mom used to work there), but she still isn't prepared for the information that zombies exist...and that she is a perfect candidate for a secret zombie-protection organization called Omega. As she hones her zombie-fighting skills, she learns more about the history of the undead (they don't like to be called zombies) in New York City and discovers her family's secret connection to Omega. A fun, modern take on zombies that's full of action.
Gravediggers: Mountain of Bones by Christopher Krovatin - The sixth grade is on a camping trip, but for Ian it's a chance to find the bodies of the dance troupe who supposedly disappeared in the area. When Ian leaves the group, his quiet friend PJ and the class brain, Kendra, follow him and are pulled deeper and deeper into the woods, even as they try to find their way back to their classmates. The trio finds refuge in an abandoned cabin, and a journal left by one of the missing dancers, a clue that seems irrelevant once a horde of zombies stumbles out of the woods--straight toward their cabin. A satisfying choice for horror movie fans.
Thank you to our many young Jedis and light saber-wielding kids who kept the Library safe from Darth Vader and his forces on Star Wars Reads Day!

Super is a book about a young boy named Daniel and his friends*, His friends have super powers. In the previous book, Powerless, they defeat the Shroud...or do they? Daniel now thinks he is becoming the Shroud and there is a new Plunket in town. There are also new villains, called Shades. Read Super to find out if Daniel and his friends defeat the Shades and give Noble Green's powers back.
I think this is a great book and I would definitely recommend it. It is suitable for ages 9-12 and I think it is more of a boy book. It is a great fantasy book. So, if you like fantasy, this is a good choice. If you want a book full of adventure, excitement, super pwoers, and Shades, read Super.
