HAVEN by Laury Falter

Author: Laury Falter
Publisher: Audeamus LLC
Date of publication: June 2013

On an ordinary day in early September, Kennedy Shaw leaves for school unaware that within a few minutes the world she knows will be gone - succumbed to an outbreak of epidemic proportions. After finding a safe haven inside the security of her enclosed high school, she learns that four others have survived, one being a bold, mysterious transfer student from Texas whose unruffled demeanor harbors more than a cool interest in her. As they struggle to survive the dead fighting their way inside, will Kennedy discover there is more to life than survival? And will she and the others find a way to live in this terrifying new world?

Haven involves Kennedy and a small group of high school students who find themselves fighting for survival when there is a zombie outbreak.  They end up holing up in their school for weeks while the zombies roam outside.  The book is fast paced and has some pretty heart stopping moments.  There is also a lot of mystery surrounding Harrison, the boy that Kennedy has been eyeing for months.  

I felt like the characters were pretty realistically portrayed, especially in how the stress of their situations would have them acting.  The romance between Kennedy and Harrison was a little fast, but given the situation, I could see how it would progress that quickly.  There were a lot of unanswered questions that I hope will be addressed in the next book.

Haven is the second zombie book that I have read this year that I ended up really liking.  The story starts off at a run and doesn't let up until the cliffhanger ending.  January can't come fast enough for the sequel!
