From the Publisher:
In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

From the Hardcover edition.
Zombies, a strict culture, and star-crossed love combine to create a gripping read in THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH. Generations ago, a horrible plague destroyed the cities, creating roving gangs of zombies, the Unconsecrated, that threaten everyone. Mary lives in a small, fenced-in village, protected from the "forest of hands and teeth" that await anyone who leaves. All are under the strict control of the Sisterhood, and Mary is alone in her curiosity about why the Unconsecrated exist, and what life was really like before. On joining the Sisterhood, she begins a journey of exploration that leads to a pulse-pounding conclusion.
