Waiting on Wednesday (6): Alice in Zombieland

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  Alice in Zombieland

Series:  White Rabbit Chronicle #1
Author:  Gena Showalter 
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen
Pages:  404
Release Date:  September 25, 2012

Summary: She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real….

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

I wish I could go back and do a thousand things differently.
I'd tell my sister no.
I'd never beg my mother to talk to my dad.
I'd zip my lips and swallow those hateful words.
Or, barring all of that, I'd hug my sister, my mom and my dad one last time.
I'd tell them I love them.

I wish... Yeah, I wish. 

Why I'm Waiting for Alice in Zombieland:  This is a book that I am begging for.  Really, I want it so badly.  And yes, it might have something to do with the fact that it sounds very Alice-in-Wonderland-y.  But mostly, I want it because of the amazing summary and cover.  Both are wonderfully done.  The minute I read the summary and saw the beautiful cover, I was ready to start reading!  

What are you waiting for this week?
