In the age old (according to editors Black & Larbalestier) quest for the answer to which is cooler, brain eating zombies or rainbow farting unicorns, twelve renowned authors have taken up sides and presented stories in support of their choice. 1. The Highest Justice, by Garth Nix: An eerie tale of murder and high intrigue in a fairy tale setting. 2. Love Will Tear Us Apart, by Alaya Dawn Johnson: A high school zombie struggles to choose between competing desires. 3. Purity Test, by Naomi Novik: A teen encounters the usual assortment of unicorns, trolls and evil wizards while hanging out in Central Park. 4. Bougainvillea, by Carrie Ryan: Carrie brings her considerable imagination to bear to give us her spin on the classic Caribbean governor's daughter meets zombies tale. I enjoyed this much more than I did Forest of Hands & Teeth. 5. A Thousand Flowers, by Margo Lanagan: A touching and very unusual love story. 6. The Children of the Revolution, by Maureen Johnson: A tongue in cheek exposé of the truth behind that beautiful celebrity couple and all their adopted children. 7. The Care and Feeding of Your Baby Killer Unicorn, by Diana Peterfreund: A fascinating tale where unicorns are less the stuff of dreams than of nightmares. 8. Inoculata, by Scott Westerfeld: A classic zombie tale with an element of Mad Max thrown in. I guess that comes from being married to an Aussie. 9. Princess Prettypants, by Meg Cabot: It's a good thing this is a story in an anthology. There is no way I would be caught dead with a book with this title on the cover. That said, this is a surprisingly entertaining story of a 17 year-old girl who doesn't get the car she wanted for her birthday. 10. Cold Hands, by Cassandra Clare: A classic romance with a dash of murder intrigue and undead thrown in. 11. The Third Virgin, by Kathleen Duey: And I thought serial killers were a uniquely human phenomenon. This one is fascinating and very original. 12. Prom Night, by Libba Bray: In a bleak world where all adults have turned into undead, the remaining teens struggle to retain a tenuous hold on normality. All of the stories are entertaining (not a stinker in the lot) a couple of the unicorn tales give off a hint of saccharin and one or two of the zombie stories tend to shamble a bit. My three favorites (Bougainvillea, Children of the Revolution & Cold Hands) just happen to all be zombie tales so I guess that if I were the judge, I'd have to side with the undead. I still don't think I'd let my daughters date one, though.
