The Girl with All the Gifts, by M.R. Carey

Sweet little Melanie–all she wants to do is be around her teacher, Miss Justineau. So, why does Dr. Caldwell want to cut her up into little pieces so she can study her brain? And why can’t she remember her parents? And why is she strapped into a wheelchair every day?

The mystery is gradually revealed, and it’s so much fun getting there. Which is what makes this book so great–what a fantastic plot. It will take you on twists you will never see coming. It’s got love, hate, horror, biting, fungus, life after death, hysteria, and a whole lot of innocence lost.

One of the best horror books I’ve read, but don’t think that’s all it is–it’s a great mixture of horror, mystery, and just a great adventure.
