From Goodreads
The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever is so bad, it could wake the dead…

After producing three horror films that went mostly ignored on YouTube, Justin and his filmmaking buddies decide it's time to make something epic. In fact, they're going to make The Greatest Zombie Movie Ever. They may not have money or a script, but they have passion. And, after a rash text message, they also have the beautiful Alicia Howtz as the lead.

Hemmed in by a one-month timeline and a cast of uncooperative extras, but aching to fulfill Alicia's dreams, Justin must face the sad, sad truth: he may, in actuality, be producing The Worst Zombie Movie Ever.

My Review
This an okay book. There are times when it slow down in pace. It's about three teens who like to make movies. They have already made 3 but there aren't good and hasn't really had any views. The director of the group Justin decides he really want the next one to be the best movie anyone has ever seen. The three then go about the task of making an epic movie in less that one month and a 5 thousand budget. 

I like how the boys were determined. Things didn't always went as plan but they would roll with it. I also like how the author writes a warning in the beginning. I am going to also tell you that what it says is true. This is not a zombie novel. It is not a horror novel. You are not going to be the least bit scared. This is a novel about some teens who are trying to make a zombie movie and the things they go through while trying to make the movie. 

There is a little bit of a twist at the end. But the blurb is pretty much sums the book right up. So all in all it is an okay book.
