Molly Anderson was a regular teenage girl before an epidemic killed almost everyone in the world. Now huge nasty zombies called Others roam the streets looking for humans to eat. One bite from an Other and it’s not long before you turn into one yourself. Molly has just emerged from the underground shelter her father locked her and her mother in six years ago.
Now that it is time and the door to the shelter has opened, Molly is walking the streets by herself but she is equipped to defend and kill if need be. She has razors that shoot out of her hands and a virtual GPS in her brain that will help her find her way, thanks to her scientist father who prepared her for this epidemic.
When Molly’s father left her and her mother in the shelter, he told her to travel to Disney World to find him as soon as the doors open. Molly is determined to get to her father no matter how dangerous the journey may be.
Molly runs into a boy named Chris Griffin upon leaving the shelter. Things have changed now and Chris is all grown up. She decides to stick with him and perhaps travel together to Florida. But Others are everywhere she looks and they quickly discover that they may not make it to Florida if they’re not careful. Will they find Molly’s father or will an Other attack them and put an end to their plan?
RAZOR GIRL is an exciting and thrilling story set in the future, the year 2036. The story goes back and forth from past to present with every chapter. This was an interesting way to tell the story because the reader has no idea what happened to Molly and why and they find out little by little. I thoroughly enjoyed RAZOR GIRL and it’s nail biting suspense. Marianne Mancusi is an excellent writer and after having read News Blues, also by her, I am amazed at how well she can write in different genres. RAZOR GIRL is overall a fantastic book and I would highly recommend it.
