Brian and his friends are not part of the cool crowd. They're the misfits, the troublemakers -- the ones who jump their High School's electrified fence to skip school regularly. So when the virus breaks out, they're the only ones with a chance of surviving. The virus turns Brian's classmates and teachers into bloodthirsty attackers who don't die easily. In other words: Zombies. The whole school goes on lockdown and the military surrounds the fence and Brian and his best friend Chad are safe (and stuck) in the theater department -- far from Brian's sister, Kenzie and his ex-girlfriend with a panic attack problem, Laura. Brian and Chad, along with some of the theater kids who he'd never given the time of day before, decide to find the girls and bring them to the safety of the theater. But it won't be easy, and it will test everything they thought they knew about themselves and their classmates. In a world turned upside down, who exactly are the real monsters?
