The second installment in New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth series set years after the zombie. 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. In the novel "The Dead -Tossed Waves" by Carrie Ryan, Gabry is a young girl who has a semi-safe life. As safe as she can get with the mudo.
Heck, even Gabrielle knows this, as she constantly compares herself to her mother! Countless times, she extrapolates about her lack of strength, her lack of curiosity and lack of a sense of adventure — especially since her mother was willing to risk so much on a mere dream. Though, Gabry is much more like her mother than she gives herself credit for — she too makes a number of impulsive, not-so-hot decisions yet is strong in her own, different way.
It should be said, however, that Gabry is ever-so-slightly irritating with her emotional equivocating between two devoted boys seriously, where do YA heroines find these guys?

Not always brave and strong, not always right, not always knowing what they want, not in tune with where their hearts lie? I loved that Gabry was terrified, paralyzed by fear, and unlike Mary. In fact, it makes it harder for her, because she has so much more to lose. And that, dear readers, is really, really freaking cool.
Beyond the first-person protagonist, the other characters of The Dead-Tossed Waves are similarly endearing. Elias, the boy shrouded in mystery, is awesome. All this said, The Dead-Tossed Waves is by no means a perfect novel. It falls short of its predecessor, straying towards the melodramatic in its last few chapters, with plot twists thrown in to tear apart characters for the sole reason of emotional exploitation. Yet, despite these minor drawbacks, The Dead-Tossed Waves is a beautiful, heartwrenching novel.
These are very genuine characters, in an impossible, terrifying reality, confronted with the choice to survive, or to live. And that, my friends, makes all the difference in the world. When you live in a forest of jagged teeth and sickly moans, on the shores of a sea teeming with bloated, ever-hungry corpses, you are unquestionably surrounded by death.
Death is inevitable. And for all this sorrow and bitterness, The Dead-Tossed Waves is tempered with hope, and with love. I loved it. And I cannot wait for more from this incredibly talented author. They said it reminded them of the before time. They said it made them feel normal. Even after the Forest was shut off, one last gasp at sequestering the infection and containing the Mudo, the carousel kept turning, the coasters kept rumbling, the teacups kept spinning.
Though my town of Vista was far away from the core of the Protectorate, they hoped people would come fly along the coasters.

Would still want to forget. But then travel became too difficult. People were concerned with trying to survive and little could make them forget the reality of the world they lived in. The coasters slowly crumbled outside the old city perched at the tip of a long treacherous road along the coast.
Book Review: The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Everyone simply forgot about them, one other aspect of pre-Return life that gradually dimmed in the memories and stories passed down from year to year. I can almost feel the energy and excitement buzzing off her skin. God, girl, live a little! I want you to come.
See a Problem?
To the amusement park. Protagonista: aside I wish I were able to just have fun like other people my age, and not worry about the swarms of pesky zombies that are moaning and groaning around the fences around my village.
Maybe just this once, I'll just go and have fun without being such a wet blanket. After all, what bad things could possibly happen? Everybody climbs over the fence and into the abandoned amusement park. Female Friend: Isn't this fun?
We're outside the safety of our village!
Random Red-Shirt: Arrgh, I've been bitten! Ack, now I'm a zombie, too! Hot N Sexy Brother: attacks the zombies Oh, shoot!
Looks like I've been bitten, too! Doesn't that just take the cake!
Protagonista: I'm petrified with fear, and overwhelmed by swarms of internal dialogue! I don't know what to do! Protagonista: Thanks a lot for telling me now, douchebag!
The Dead-Tossed Waves
But seriously, I love you too! Runs back to the fence Everybody else: We're stunned immobile! This is all so sudden and surprising!
We just wanted to be out in zombie-infested territory and have some kicks! Who would've thought something like a zombie attack might happen? Scene II: Protagonista's Momma's Lighthouse Momma: Basically, all of your friends were found roaming around outside of the safe zone last night. You wouldn't happen to know anything about that, would you?
Protagonista: Gee, mom, I'm shocked. So, is that the kind of thing you, like, get in trouble for doing? Momma: Yes, sweetie. The ones that aren't already zombified are being deported.
Sent to Gary, Indiana. Protagonista: Stunned Not Gary, Indiana! So, we're a bit miffed about the whole thing. Protagonista: It's so unfair!
Aside: and I feel immense internal guilt for running away last night, when I could've maybe helped out by staying outside of the fence and screaming while I watched my friends get eaten by zombies. Momma: By the way, I'm not your real mom. I found you when you were a tiny little tot, wandering around out in the wilderness, so I rescued you and took you in, and then raised you.
But, we aren't related by blood. I've just taken care of you since you were a toddler. Protagonista: You're not my real mother, and you didn't tell me before now? I hate you! You're an evil, bad person!
Momma: Are you taking your medicine, sweetie? Is wrought with guilt. Bee Eff Eff: Oh, Protagonista! Have you seen Hot n Sexy?
Is he okay? He must be okay! Protagonista: I know, right? Life would be so unfair otherwise.He has virtually no personality outside of "decent guy" and "crush on Gabry". It is. The story line isn't very original either, it mirrors The Forest of Hands and Teeth in many ways; an indecisive, helpless girl mooning over two boys, a journey down the fenced paths, the inevitable loss of companions, and an infuriatingly selfish act at the end.
I suspect that I could read a story about the itsy-bitsy spider climbing his spout, and if it were written by her, I'd get sucked in, even if it went on for pages. Suddenly my head feels too light. I hate you! The Forest of Hands and Teeth — Hardcover v. Ugh, again, like with Mary and Travis, Catcher is very, very dull. Finally she went on her own, standing in the middle of the rushing water, her skirt billowing around her knees and her hair blowing into her mouth as she laughed.
She is completely incapable to see reality in front of her.
