    "I've been reading this for about a week and am really getting into it. It takes a turn from just general zombie apocalypse to focus on a young character who is growing up. I guess kind of a coming of age but in zombieland? I'd recommend for any zombie genre lover."

    "Seems a bit over sexualized for a young adult book but it's a refreshing take on the zombie apocalypse theme. It's hard to stand out in this genre considering it being so saturated."

    " The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. ... Mary lives in a secluded village in the Forest of Hands and Teeth. It's a suffocating existence because she's always dreamed of leaving, walking past the fence that encloses it, and finding the ocean her mother always told her about.For this forest is made not only of earth and trees, but of the unconsecrated who hunger for flesh and sinew, tearing with hands and gnashing their teeth.Attractive story make readers gloomy ad mysterious."

    "I enjoy reading books that carry a historical significance, especially during the times of medieval chivalry. Throughout the book, I found that I was getting incredibly close to the characters, as it reminded me of an earlier version of The Walking Dead. It was a book that I couldn't put down and hope to share it with my friends and family. "
