The Forest of Hands and Teeth

By: Carrie Ryan

BOOK TALK

Mary lives in a world governed by strict rules created by the Sisterhood to protect the village from the Unconsecrated dead who constantly hunger for flesh. As a young, unmarried woman she must be betrothed or become a Sister. Her mother?s stories of places beyond the forest and of vast salty oceans lead her to dreams of escape. When her village is attacked, Mary must choose to follow her dream or to follow the man she loves. This beautifully written, gripping novel of a post-apocalyptic world will stay with you for a long time.
