Our story begins in an ordinary suburban middle school with a group of unsuspecting students, and one smart-alecky question to the teacher: “Mr. Hunter, did you hear about the zombie that attacked some guy the other day?”
Of course, the other students dismiss it, all except for one. He’s intrigued enough to dig a little deeper.
The student and Mr. Hunter begin plotting reported attacks on a map, and trying to discern a pattern in the outbreak’s spread.
“They’re getting closer to us,” the student concludes.
