The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Mary lives in a world surrounded by fences.  A world where the Unconsecrated hunger for human flesh.  A world of rules and isolation  where a single mistake will let you make one choice, to be killed quickly because you are infected or to be put into the forest as you change into a zombie.

In a world in which an experiment went very wrong and isolation is the key to survival there is not much flexibility of thinking.  Only by following the rules is survival possible but the rules have also caused the digression of the society.

The first couple of chapters set the stage and then things begin to move quickly.  The first in the series the ending offers hope for humankind.
