Zombies vs. Unicorns
The book 'Zombies vs. unicorns' is beautifully written by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier. Each team is constructed of several authors, each taking turns telling shorts stories about each creature; zombies and unicorns.
Holly Black leads the unicorn team. She is the author of several books including 'Ironside.' Her first book 'Tithe: A modern faerie tale.' was made it to the ALA top ten book list for teens. It has been translated into twelve different languages.
Justine Larbalestier leads the Zombie team. She is also a teen fiction writer. She has written several books including 'Liar' and 'How to ditch your fairy.' Her website is www.JustineLarbalestier.com.
The idea for the book started on Justines blog, when she wrote an article about zombies. Holly Black then commented saying that unicorns were actually better. The fight was on, each girl then made a team to argue their side and so the book was born.
So are you team Zombie or team Unicorn?
