Gena Showalter’s “Through the Zombie Glass”

Off With Their Heads!

Alice Bell would be happy to wake up any time now. That might mean that the world would be back to normal, the car crash that killed her family would never have happened … and she wouldn’t be an unwilling (if effective) slayer of zombies. Bestselling Oklahoma author Gena Showalter, the pen behind 2012’s “Alice in Zombieland,” sends her young adult heroine further down the rabbit hole in “Through the Zombie Glass,” available in October from Now fighting to overcome undead foes as well as to maintain her sanity, Alice finds her life has become a deadly chess match with herself as the Red Queen. At least, she’s covered in red …

Written “by kids, for kids,” the alphabet book “O Is for Oklahoma” contains 26 couplets composed by members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County, accompanied by photographs from David Fitzgerald. Detailing in verse some of the Sooner State’s highlights from the Arbuckle Mountains to the OKC Zoo, it’s a cute way to engage young minds. B is for Bravo!
