Nomination: Dearly, Departed

Habel, Lia.  Dearly, Departed.  2011.  480p.  Del Rey/Ballantine, $16.99  (978-0-345-52331-0).  Gr. 7-up.  [kpr]

It’s 2195 and even though the post-apocalyptic society Nora Dearly lives in is technologically advanced it follows the social mores of Victorian England.   Nora always pushes the boundaries of socially acceptable female behavior, while her best friend Pamela is happy to fit in.  When the two are separated during a zombie attack, Pamela recalls Nora’s strength and intelligence and is inspired to throw off convention in order to stay alive.
