Molly Anderson is not your normal 21 year old. She has spent the last six years in a bunker waiting for the timer to open the door and let her out. Her father, full of conspiracy theories, made sure that Molly would be safe when the apocalypse came. Now the time has come for her to go back into the world. She has no idea what to expect but she was built to survive and has a mission to save the world.

Molly has been 'improved' by her father. Using ideas from his favourite book he made her faster and stronger than anyone else. With her razor-tipped nails and ocular implants she is built to survive the world she has been released back into. A world full of zombie like humans left over by a terrible plague.

Chase Griffin was a friend from her past that she finds alive. Unintentionally she hurt him six years ago and luckily he doesn't seem to be holding a grudge. With only a few humans still alive in the area and Chase willing to help her she has to learn to trust them and make a journey together that could save what little there is left of life as they knew it.

Razor Girl really grabbed me straight away and didn't let go until the end. This apocalyptic young adult work of fiction was amazing and I couldn't wait to see what would happen at the end. A mixture of I Am Legend and Z for Zachariah this book is for the older young adult and should not be read by anyone who doesn't like things that go bump in the night.

This was a perfect Halloween read and I loved how the author based her character on a character from another book (apparently William Gibson, or so my boyfriend tells me) and took it to another level. This is one of the best young adult reads I have read in a while and I hope that this author will come up with some more equally great reads. On saying that the author does have a great young adult vampire series. The Blood Coven has three books so far. Make sure you check out - Stake That! , Boys that Bite & Girls That Growl
