Meet another exciting up-and-coming author in the young adult scene at our pizza party celebrating the release of The Dead Tossed Waves, a companion title to the critically acclaimed novel The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Carrie Ryan earned praise from critics and teens alike with her debut novel and its literary exploration of a post-apocalyptic society attempting to exist in the midst of a constant threat of zombie invasion.

Lyrical and captivating like it predicessor, the tory continues within the confines of a world devastated by a deadly virus. But The Dead Tossed Waves (On sale March 9) takes a distinctive narrative turn, conveying the same world from a different, and wholly original, point of view - Mary's daughter - in this gripping story bound by rules and fences. Unlike her mother, Gabry  is content with her quiet life by the sea. But life after the Return is never safe and there are threats even the Barrier can't hold back. And when a simple childhood dare opens up a dangerous and terrifying world full of Mudo, Soulers, and a tangled web of love, hurt, andger, and mystery, Gabry begins to question everything and trust no one.
