The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Carrie Ryan

INFECTION SWEEPS THROUGH ALL OF NORTH AMERICA, HUMAN TURNED MONSTER!

In the story The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Mary lives in a world where you obey the Sisters, the Guardians protect and the Unconsecrated never stop coming. They will forever claw at the fences in hunger for living flesh. Mary has a fairly decent life inside the fences and she can’t complain. She is being protected from what lies outside in the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Harry is Mary’s best friend and always will be but he wants to be something more from there. Mary had already lost her father to the forest but now as her mother searches for her love to come back she has become infected. Her and her brother are the only parts of the family left. When some stranger comes from the outside Mary has hope that there must be something else out there for her than this life. But one day when the fences are breached Mary and her friends run from the only world she has ever known onto a path in the forest. As she travels the forest claims many of her friends. From traveling so long she finds a new sanctuary, it may not be completely safe from the Unconsecrated, but it might just finally be enough for her.

Don't bring me down.

I think that Chains would be really good for this story because it seems like every time something good happens to Mary something else bad happens and the song is sort of I think about how he thinks that love hurts and then it's pointless to mourn over something that you have lost. Or it could be that he tries to stop but that only makes him fall even more apart because he says "trying to break the chains but the chains only break me" so he's trying to stop it but that only breaks him. Mary is trying to stop mourning but that only makes her worse because she took it out on everybody and she became even more sad.

Chains

"Chains"

With her wine-stained lips, yeah, she nothing but trouble
Cold to the touch but she's warm as a devil
I gave her my heart but she wont heal my soul
She takes 'til I break and I can't get more

You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love
You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love

Tryna break the chains but the chains only break me
(Hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey)
Tryna break the chains but the chains only break me

Alone in the night 'til she knocks on my door
Oh no, wasted again but I can't say no (no)
Baby tell me why, why you do, do me wrong
Baby tell me why, why you do, do me wrong
Gave you my heart but you took my soul

You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love
You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love

Tryna break the chains but the chains only break me
(Hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey)
Tryna break the chains but the chains only break me

Hey-ey-ey-ey [4x]

You got me in...

Baby tell me why, why you do, do me wrong
Baby tell me why, why you do, do me wrong
Gave you my heart but you took my soul

You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love
You got me in chains, you got me in chains for your love
But I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change this love

Tryna break the chains but the chains only break me
