LoveReading View on The Forest of Hands and Teeth

This is a remarkable and moving debut novel that was causing waves well before it was published.  The author has crafted a powerful and at times frightening tale that explores humanity’s unfailing desire not just to survive, but to live, even in its darkest hours.  Beautifully written, terrifically paced and featuring one of the most relatable and identifiable characters in young adult fiction, The Forest of Hands and Teeth is set to capture the imaginations of readers of all ages with its mix of horror, redemption and sheer breathtaking storytelling.  Told through the eyes of a young girl called Mary, this is set to be the debut of the year we reckon.


The Forest of Hands and Teeth Synopsis
