The Forest of Hands and Teeth (YA) (4.5/5)


The Forest of Hands and Teeth (YA) (4.5/5)

Sort of a take on the Living Dead movies, this book talks about a fenced in village surrounded by the "unconsecrated"--people who have returned from the dead as zombies. Mary is a teenager whose mother always told her about the ocean outside of their fenced in world. Mary longs to see it. After her mother's death and a horrible attack on the village, Mary and a small group head out on a forbidden path to try to get away from the zombies. This book had a lot of action, some romantic angst and some blood. For that, I think both HS boys and girls would enjoy it. This is slightly different than the hugely popular vampire market but I think those fans would enjoy this book as well.
