Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Armed with a pitchfork, miner's hat, and map, Mick Bogerman dares to hunt for pirate treasure in Zombie Cave. His little brother Finley is tied up at the beach. Literally--Mick tied him up. No one needs a little brother tagging along when you're going to slay the undead. But Mick soon wishes he;d taken some human company with him, because lurking in every corner, reaching from every crevice, is another hungry corpse. No wonder the place is named Zombie Cave! And finding treasure in the twisty tunnels is a lot harder when your map disintegrates. And man-oh-man the cold, dark tide chases fast. But the worst part about fighting off ravenous flesh-eaters is the one monster deadlier than a regular zombie...the worst of the worst...Pirate Pete.

Mick Bogerman is a cool kid. At his age I was still playing with Barbie's and discovering boy bands. Not Mick and his little brother Finley though, they go on adventures everyday! In this adventure Mick finds his way to Zombie Cave to find Pirate Pete's treasure. He thinks Finley can't handle himself, so he tricks him and leaves him somewhere else so he can conquer Zombie Cave alone. But Mick completely underestimates the zombies and their strength. Turns out, his little brother is his best friend and savior in this book.

Mick is such a great character because he's headstrong and determined. For Mick, it doesn't matter what anyone says or does, he knows what he wants and he knows how to get it...well sort of! He is still a kid after all and his ideas are a bit crazy and dramatic. Which of course I love because that's exactly what makes the book so much fun to read and live in. Finley, on the other hand is one smart kid. He figures out how to escape and find his brother just in time. Finley is such a lovable character because he is smart and headstrong just like his brother, but he has such a go-with-the-flow attitude.

Overall I really loved this book. The story line was fun and believable (if you're a child at heart like me hehe) and it's really catchy for all kinds of people that read it. Children and adults alike :)
