"The Forest of hands and Teeth" by Carrie Ryan

Mary, a teenager living in a village somewhere in the middle of the Forest of Hands and Teeth, dreams of what lies beyond the hordes of Unconsecrated that keep her and her people so isolated. Bound to follow the child-rearing focus of the Sisters near tyrannical grip on her people she sees no other choice but to give up and marry the boy who she doesn't love... that is until her town falls and armed with only her mother's stories from the world pre-Retun and her small group of surviving friends find refuge on the Path.

A great read for anyone who enjoys the post-apocolyptic genre, light fiction or a solidly written teenage narrative similar to the Benny Imura stories from Jonathan Maberry. Overall, this one is worth the price of admission and I'm already digging into book two.
