The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

The Forest of Hands and TeethMary’s village has been trapped for generations by a very near, very visible menace: the “Unconsecrated” insatiable, flesh-eating zombies that constantly tear at the village’s fences. Yet the Sisterhood a convent-like order of religious women charged to protect the village’s survival is as much responsible for the submission of Mary’s village as the Unconsecrated. When the fences are breached and the village overrun, Mary and several others escape through gated paths and arrive deep into the Forest of Hands and Teeth, forced to search beyond it for their future.
