Forced to live in a sociey that treat him like crap. He lives in a 1 bedroom small apartment with his mother. His mother who had him young drop out of school to take care of him.

Something he knew that with a little guidance, Nick could turn out to be a good kid.A video game makes it way to the football team that who ever play it turns them into zombies. Now Nick, thrown into a world he never knew, trys to save friends.Sherrilyn wrote a FANTASTIC book. Nick Gautier quick wittiness to anything he encourntered was a hoot!
