The Dead by Charlie Higson

The child in the video was terrified. Within days it had gone viral. The Internet stopped working – and they realised something was seriously wrong. The sickness struck everyone over fourteen. First, it twisted their minds. Next it ravaged their bodies. Now they roam the streets – crazed and hungry. Jack and Ed are survivors, determined to return home to London.
