The Tobins have moved to Walden Woods because they thought they would be safe in the friendly, upscale community, with an excellent school system. But there are no safe places left on Earth, as they discover when a teenager is killed in a driving accident, a number of cars are stolen and trashed, and Christian fundamentalists begin demanding the censorship of books like The Diary of Anne Frank.   Trying to stay safe in a town full of the undead, year-old Jack and his friends soon realize they are THE LAST KIDS ON EARTH. Jack treats the whole thing like a video game, complete with race courses and challenges for points, and with his best friend Quint builds an epically cool tree fort, makes friends with the town’s monsters, and tries to figure out how to survive.5/5.
