Book review of Dead- Tossed Wave by Carrie Ryan

book description from Amazon:

"Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves."

Like The Forest of Hands and Teeth before it .. this book was heart stirring. A mix of learning about ones self and the will to survive and the courage to choose what you really want . Gabry blooms into a strong courageous girl that draws you in with her vulnerability and innocence. through Garby you learn how situations in life change us , and teach us . Once you go into the Forest, you will never come out the way you went in .
