The Forest of Hands and Teeth

I just completed the book The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. I read it straight through. I love zombie movies but this book beat them all. The story is of a post apocalyptic society that exists inside a fenced in area. Outside of the fences live the unconsecrated. They have died of an unknown, uncurable infections that causes a quick death and then they return as the undead. This is the story of a young girl told stories by her mother of a life outside of the fences. When her mother is infected a series of events occur that take her, her brother and several friends on a journey to find the ocean. This is a book that I highly recommend to everyone. It will definately keep you on the edge of your seat.
