So this is the second installment from Carrie Ryan in the Forest of Hands and Teeth series-ish. It's not a typical series because it doesn't follow one set of characters. In this (the second book) we follow the story of Gabry, (daughter of the main character from the first book). The books work well when read together, but definitely work find on their own too. I liked The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but I think I really preferred The Dead-Tossed Waves. I could identify more with the character and her fears, since I'm pretty much a scaredy cat myself. I also liked Catcher and Elias more than the "love interests" in the previous book. I'm trying to convince Luke to read these now - I think he will like The Dead-Tossed Waves better, so I'm having him start off with that one. My one complaint: now I have to wait till next March to find out what happens with Catcher and Elias. And I am SO excited that the last book will focus on Catcher. He's probably my favorite character so far!
