The Forest of Hands and Teeth takes place in the United States many years after an infection has turned most of the world's population into zombies. Small colonies of people live in fenced in cities with the dead waiting outside, watching them, hoping to feast on their flesh. Mary's whole life has been spent in such a village that is run by an order of strict nuns called the Sisterhood. She has always dreamed of leaving, and then one day, she has no other choice.
