This book actually ended up being my favourite this year, I really enjoyed it, it was suspenseful and had interesting characters.

This book was something I wouldn't normally pick up but enjoyed. I found it played around with your emotions and I really felt for the main character.

I did enjoy this book, but i found it very emotional and depressing. Also i think the ending should have answered a few more questions.

I don't usually enjoy zombies, but this book made me want to keep reading. It was well done and I do recommend that you read it.

Just finished this book- it was definitely a suspenseful story and it was interesting how instead of making zombies seem not scary and dangerous they made themseem scary and dangerous but I wish that the end wasn't so open.

I started reading last night and I'm half way through - would have finished if I could have stayed up all night.

"First-person, present-tense narration brings psychological tension and raw authenticity to this unusual and gripping survival story. Sloan Price is so damaged by her horrifically abusive home life that when the zombie infection hits her town, she sees it a welcome opportunity to die. Yet when she’s barricaded inside the high school with a group of other teens, she finds herself fighting for life instead, even as personal relationships strain and flesh-eating monsters beat down the door. Pushing the boundaries of traditional brains-and-blood-soaked zombie stories, This Is Not a Test is a must-read for fans of Carrie Ryan."

I didn't really expect it to be this good. Thought it was just another zombie gorey and desperate post-apocalypse kind of book, but it was more than that. It had a bit of romance, and intriguing parts about her families' past. Really hooked me in. I finished it in one night! :)

Oh wow. This book was great - seriously depressing - but a captivating read. The characters were great, but I repeat: this book was sooo sad! The stuff that happens is probably realistic for what would happen, but still majorly sad. And, I do not deal well with open endings haha....I want to know what happens next! I wish there was a sequel or something.

This book is really intense! I agree, it was well written and kept me reading, even though I wouldn't normally read a zombie book. It is a little dark and nihilistic for me, however.
