The Day the Dead Came to Show and Tell: A Newsflesh Novella - Mira Grant

As a note, don't read the blurb for this story because of spoilers. Also, parts of this short story come after the conclusion of the Newsflesh series, so don't read it unless you have finished the trilogy.  (This review doesn't contain any spoilers for the trilogy, though!)

That said, moving on to the review.


For those curious, the majority of the ebook was the story itself.  There are a few pages at the end containing an excerpt from Parasite.

This short story was incredibly hard to read for me. Knowing it takes place at an elementary school made me almost not want to finish, in a way. I read it over the course of the day because I kept having to put it down because I was sad or horrified or both. I just knew horrible things were going to happen and that was hard sometimes. But I loved the story and I found it very hard to stop reading even while being horrified and sometimes needing to give myself a break.

An interesting, if heartbreaking, look into another angle of the Newsflesh world.
