Tara’s CBR-III Review #28: The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Genre: Post Apocalyptic/Young Adult

This is a zombie book. I don’t really care for zombie books, but this one looked pretty promising. It follows a teenager named Mary who grew up in a fenced in town in the middle of the Forest of Hands and Teeth — named for the zombies that reside there. After the zombification of both her parents, Mary is rejected by her brother and sent to live with the Sisterhood in the town chapel. While there, she falls in love with Travis and meets a strange girl named Gabrielle who appeared from the forest one day.

The premise of this book was very interesting. I kept wanting to read more, which is always a good thing. It was also well written, so aside from the sort of cheesy romance it didn’t feel as “dumbed down” as some YA books seem.
