Bone Gap


Bone Gap

Everyone in the small town of Bone Gap knows Finn is a little spacey and a bit of a daydreamer, unlike his strong and charming older brother, Sean. The two have been living on their own for years, as their father died and their mother simply left. The thing about Bone Gap is, there are all kinds of gaps you can slip through and no one will wonder why you left.

Finn and Sean remember what it was like to be happy --- it started when an injured Polish girl, Roza, appeared in their barn one day and accepted their offer to stay in the apartment attached to their home. She would not say what happened to her or how she showed up there, but she agreed to stay with them. Soon after, she and Sean started to develop feelings for each other.

"This is definitely one of the best and most exciting books I've read in awhile."

But one day, her past finally catches up with her and steals her away! She's been kidnapped, and only Finn witnesses it. He tells everyone what he saw but they don't believe him. "She wanted to leave," they say. She simply slipped through one of Bone Gap's gaps. Finn knows that he must take it upon himself to save her from a kidnapper with mysteries and magic up his sleeve. 

BONE GAP is a fantastical tale that leaves you wishing it would continue beyond the last page. The characters are extremely likable and well-developed. The book is full of magical experiences told in such a way that they seem quite possible, and the love story is not your typical romance. This is definitely one of the best and most exciting books I've read in awhile. I'd recommend this to anyone who appreciates a well-spun tale that’s woven together with elements of magic, romance and mystery!
