A couple of months have passed since the earthquake that couldn’t possbily be, and Frederik is beginning to feel it is safe to reenter the society of Frederik’s Hill. Pernille couldn’t care less, though. She has her own things to attend to, and if Frederik isn’t friend enough to come along, she’ll take care of them on her own. Then word that there would soon be zombies shocks the community, and especially the controlling mayor. The mayor’s midsummer festival must be protected at all costs!
Things spiral rapidly beyong Frederik’s control, and the simmering tensions shooting through the community affect even the friendship at the heart of this book. Separations, old rivalries, new partnerships, and mysteries solved. This is a fantastically funny middle grade novel with a strong backbone about outsiders and others.
