review 1: Ok, the whole zombie thing doesn't do much for me, so I was surprised at how much I liked this book! Rabi, Miguel and Joe are typical 13-year-old boys and best buds. When a horrible smell in their town leads the boys to the local Iowa meat packing plant, they are horrified to find that all of the "super grow" techniques used on the cows appears to create zombies! Frombaseball to industrial coverups to immigration busts to bullies turned zombies, this book is an adventure a minute and I really liked it!
review 2: It was an ordinary day of baseball and being bullied for Rabi, Joe, and Miguel when the zombie apocalypse began. Rabi gets attacked by the baseball coach and gathers his friends to help him save their small town. The three friends soon learn that the
... more zombies may have come from the meat packing plant, who tried to sweep a tainted meat scandal under the rug. Will the three be able to uncover the full story, and keep the world from a major catastrophe?This book is so much more than just zombies, baseballs, and beatdowns! How could you want more, you ask? Well on top of humor, and action we actually get a dose of some serious social commentary. Bacigalupi manages to talk about racism, food safely, and immigration. It is nice to see a book for this age group have more than one layer! My one big issue with this is that it seems to be packing a little bit too much into such a small book, and the themes and plot can be overwhelming at times. However if you can take it in small pieces, you may just find yourself cheering in the scenes with Zombie Cows! less

Full of friendship, justice, and gross zombie details. Middle grade boys will love it!

liked it. entertaining. good for boys. little preachy.
