Starred Review!

Hey Y'all!  Very exciting news!  I just got a second starred review for The Forest of Hands and Teeth  - this one from School Library Journal!  They say
"[T]he suspense that Ryan has created from the very first page on entices and tempts readers so that putting the book down is not an option"
FHT was also reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend and they say
"The Forest of Hands and Teeth starts strong and never lets up.... Ryan's choice to place her novel in the wilderness is inspired... [T]his novel delivers a thrilling new take on an apocalyptic trope that is now in danger of becoming complete farcical."
Hooray!  And now back to revising....
