Format: Paperback
There are some good aspects to this book, and by all accounts the sequel is better than this one, and so I may well read that one as well. However, this book was very difficult for me for several reasons.

Firstly, I need to like or identify with the characters, and in this book I didn't like any of them - with the exception of the character of the grandmother. For me this was mostly down to over-writing the characters, as if the author felt they had to make these bigger or more extreme to entertain the readers. This only works if your reader buys into it as believable, and in a lot of cases I didn't.

I'll try and explain why without giving out spoilers, but be warned if reading this that from here on you may get the odd slight one. The story is written from a first-person perspective of the "heroine", Kasey, and in third-person when the story shifts to any party or person that isn't currently with her, which is fine. The problem for me with Kasey started when the group got together. She was bossy as heck, made herself the self-appointed leader before breaking large amounts of her own rules. She was prone to throwing inappropriate tantrums over nothing or at the wrong time for what was happening. She displayed no qualities that would define her as a leader, and I doubted people would look to her for it, even though they did. Starting a plan and being a good shot does not make you a leader, and she lacks the qualities that do make you one.

The character relationships didn't work for me either that well. The way the boys treat the Mike character was way overboard and just never believable for me. The Kasey and Ben relationship had me confused due to the fact I thought when they confessed their love for each other it was like real love, not friendship love.

Roads Less Traveled: The Plan is divided into three parts. Part One, Down The Road, begins on October 1st. A young woman named Kasey actually had a "Z-plan" in place before the zombie outbreak in the story. She and her friends are apparently huge zombiephiles.

"Sure it might sound crazy, but who's alive right now and who's not?"~Kasey

Ben and Jake are Kasey's two friends that agreed to the Z-plan, but the three of them are joined by Jake's grandmother, Nancy, and some fellow college students who are caught up with the main trio during their escape from the city to Kasey's home in the Appalachian Mountains. The POV switches between Ben and Kasey throughout Part One, until their storylines merge on October 6th.

Part Two, The Road Home, begins on October 7th, and switches POV to a friend of Kasey's named Mia, who was briefly included in a phone call with Kasey in Part One. Mia runs out of supplies in her home, and tries to escape to Kasey's safe haven. Along the way, she meets a little boy named Ashton at a rest area, which further complicates Mia's dire situation. The POV switches temporarily to Kyra, who is abrasive towards Kasey, and causes one problem after another for her group. Instead of eliciting sympathy, Kyra's thoughts and actions only justify the hatred readers are sure to feel towards her character. When the storylines of Mia and Kyra finally merge, the cast of characters find themselves in a downward spiral, despite their carefully laid out survival plan.

Part Three, Road To Nowhere, which begins on October 20th, was emotionally devastating. The horrors that Kasey and her group have to face had me in tears.
