The world was tough for one insecure teen but when a zombie apocalypse changes the world Avery steps up to become the caring and complex leader that was always buried deep inside them.

Labelled as “weird” and “different” by their peers, Avery had struggled to find acceptance in their small town high school. But despite the social isolation, Avery had always found solace in their love for science fiction and horror movies.

So when a parasitic virus sweeps across the world, turning humans into mindless hosts for the infected, Avery is oddly prepared and excited by the indisputable confirmation that the feeling that they always had deep down inside them, that they were meant for something more, was real, and their time to excel has finally arrived.

But surviving in a world overrun by zombies is no easy task. The military has been called in to contain the virus, but their efforts have only resulted in the destruction of entire towns and cities. Avery knows that they must find a way out before it is too late.

In a weird twist of events Avery accidently saves four of the popular kids from their school.  After an awkward start, but soon bonding over the traumas of their collective pasts, the group, the only survivors in their small town, must navigate through a new world faced with ravenous infected and dangerous scavengers.

The world has become a dark and dangerous place, and sometimes it seems like there is no end in sight. But Avery refuses to give up. They have found purpose in their life and are determined to make it through, believing there are still good people out there, and they are determined to find them.

And so, the group continue on their journey, facing obstacles and challenges at every turn. But through it all, they remain united, driven by a fierce determination to survive and to find a new world where they can finally be free to live without fear.
