Haven (Apocalypse Chronicles, 1) by Laury Falter

Summary on Goodreads.

On an ordinary day in early September, Kennedy Shaw leaves for school unaware that within a few minutes the world she knows will be gone - succumbed to an outbreak of epidemic proportions. After finding a safe haven inside the security of her enclosed high school, she learns that four others have survived, one being a bold, mysterious transfer student from Texas whose unruffled demeanor harbors more than a cool interest in her. As they struggle to survive the dead fighting their way inside, will Kennedy discover there is more to life than survival? And will she and the others find a way to live in this terrifying new world?

Let me see.... zombie attack... trapped in a school... Hmm... Where have I read this before? (Brain literally bleeding from thinking overly hard)

Kennedy: secretly trained by her father to be a G. I. Jane. I guess this amazon training comes very handy when facing a zombie attack. She knows how to use guns and all. The whole six yards.

Harrison: an odd Adonis walking on Earth. Has never opened up to any girl before because they weren't interesting enough for him...As you can guess, he is interested in Kennedy but she thinks so little of herself that she doesn't notice. I mean, why would anyone look at her when Beverly is there, right?

So we have this constant "is he flirting with me;" or when after an attack he asked her "are you okay" and she goes "is he concerned about me?" Although he is probably just asking because is the decent thing to say in those circumstances.

Beverly: the name says it all, but just in case you wonder... beautiful, immaculate, wears designer's clothes and real jewelry. Used to be Kennedy's friend.

Other kids: involved so the story is not so obviously about romance in the middle of a meat eating and blood splitting apocalypse.

ZZZZZZZZZ skip it. Go read This is not a test by Courtney Summers instead. Yeah, that's what this wants to be. Well, wanted to be.
