Jane can’t wait to graduate from Miss Preston’s school of Combat for Negro Girls, and get home to her beloved Rose Hill, but a betrayal throws her plans into total chaos. Jane is the kick ass, zombie-slaying heroine I've been waiting for, in this intelligent and deeply-layered genre mash-up. I adored this book!

Trained at Miss Preston's School of Combat for Negro Girls in both weaponry and etiquette, Jane McKeene is poised for a successful career protecting the wealthy from the encroaching plague of walking dead. But when families begin to go missing, Jane uncovers a conspiracy that pits her against some powerful enemies. Sent far from home, Jane will need all her resourcefulness, wit and strength of character to survive.
A powerful, compelling tale of a young girl's journey through a hostile world, Jane McKeene is an unforgettable protagonist, and Dread Nation is an unforgettable book.
