The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Posted in book review tagged , , at 3:32 pm by blueblazeslib

Mary is not like the other girls in the village. Everyone seems like clones of one another, they don’t seem to care why, where, and who they really are.

There is a type of disease that has spread throughout the world, causing people to become a kind of monster, like a vampire. The people that have not been yet touched by the disease live in a village and are guarded by a fence from the “Unconsecrated.” No one in the village knows what these things that live in the forest are and no one really wants to find out. The Sisters of the village guard some kind of secret that no one outside their alliance knows about.

All the people know is that they have to follow tradition. No one asks questions or dares to step foot near the fence. But Mary’s curiosity takes over and she needs to question everything around her. She puts herself in such a situation that all the people in the village are at risk and you either have to run for survival or be destroyed.
