Reboot by Amy Tintera
Dystopic action adventure and zombie romance. What's not to love?
5 years ago, 12-year-old Wren Connolly was shot and killed. 178 minutes later, she woke up. Now, she's a Reboot, a dead soldier working for the government to protect the peace of the living humans who have--so far--survived plagues, starvation, drug addiction, and the violence of the slums. At least, that's what she's been told.
When she agrees to train Callum (who was only dead for 22 minutes, and thus is still "mostly human") Wren begins to look beyond the orders she is given. She begins to recognize that her own emotions are not gone. She even begins to fall in love with Callum.
But time is running out for Callum. Wren is going to need all her Reboot strength and all her human cunning to escape...and she's going to need the other Reboots to help her do it.
(Ohh, bad zombie pun, sorry!)
