It begins with strange smells from the meatpacking plant while middle schoolers Rabi, Joe, and Miguel are playing baseball. And as you might have guessed from the title, there are zombies. It's a fun little zombie romp, but it also has a lot to say about race and immigration and economics. And it doesn't try to guilt/scare you into becoming a vegetarian, which I appreciated. I like books that can say Big Things about Big Topics without making feel like I'm being lectured to. It still has plenty of funny moments, and no dull ones. Definitely a worthwhile read, especially for younger readers.
