I really enjoy books about supernatural things like vampires, zombies, postapocalypse. So I liked this book. It was a very fast, easy read. I would say the book falls in the YA category. It is about a girl living in a postapocalyptic society that has very strict rules and no one asks questions of those who are in charge. Mary is seen as problematic because she questions the sisterhood's authority and steps outside the box. She lives in a village that is fenced in because beyond the fences in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, roam the "unconsecrated" aka zombies. Mary's world is thrown into chaos when the fence is breached. Now her and her friends have to do everything they can to survive. If you like reading the YA genre and you like postapocalyptic books, then I would recommend this series.
