Carrie Ryan's first novel, The Forest of Hands and Teeth is TAKE-YOU-OFF-GUARD GREAT!! I was so surprised that I would even like this book - the whole storyline was not really a typical "Becky" read, but I truly enjoyed it. The Sisterhood, the Guardians, and the Unconsecrated come together to challenge everything Mary has even known. She starts to question truths she has been taught and believed ever since she was a child. And it all begins with "the ocean" - so good. Throw in some "vampire-like" creatures, some romance, teen angst and there you have it - our teens are going to LOVE this one!
