This is not your average teen tale. In a post-apocalyptic world infected by the unconsecrated (zombies), young Mary must decide if there could be life beyond the fences of her small world ... in the forbidden forest , and if there is does she betray her upbringing and risk everything, including death, to find out? Once out, there is no turning back, and Mary and several others must push forward while trying to survive in the forest of hand and teeth.
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan is the first of a three-book series; the second book is The Dead-Tossed Waves, and book three, Dark and Hollow Places is set to come out in March 2011. For more information on this quietly popular series check out the author's web site. As with most titles nowadays, look for a movie version of this title some time in 2011. Oh, and don't let the zombies get you!
