Broken Hearts & Zombie Parts
About this deal
But Hussey skillfully weaves in a more serious undercurrent, while still keeping the overall tone light, and doesn't overlook the challenges faced by young LGBTQ+ people today.
Really, this book was so incredibly cute and funny and sweet and heartwarming and painful and „I have hearts in my eyes“! Jessie must face all these things, and the underlying equation between Jessie’s psychological battle and the zombie film he was making is beautifully done. It’s full of great characters with real depth, covers important issues like heart surgery, body image, this ‘Big-Gay-Zom-Rom-Com’ isn’t just a light fluffy read, it’s as full as depth and character as Jesse is.This was just so much fun, I was expecting this and it didn’t disappoint at all, it delivered everything I wanted and more. And his latest book, Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts, is a rom-com about a boy who needs an open heart operation. Jesse, Cas and Morgan are more than best friends, they’re soulmates, even better they’re all masters of their crafts - directing, filming, acting. Pulling from his own personal experience, this story of a talented teen filmmaker who discovers he needs open heart surgery is an emotional ride as Jesse tries to get his Zombie movie filmed before he goes under the knife.
I did see the ending coming from a mile off (although not all of it's details) but I loved seeing how we managed to get there.
Broken Hearts and Zombie Parts is a very personal story, and if you follow William on social media, you probably know why.
