Doll Bones

Cover of book Doll Bones
Categories: Fiction » Mystery

Recommended by one of our fifth graders. Not sure why this won the Newbery Honor - kind of creepy, strange creepy. Who was the librarian? Was she someone she was not? Why was the doll possessed


and why was the ghost so weird? I like the idea of kids on a quest and that a real-life quest is much more uncomfortable and often boring than a literary or make-believe quest, but too many things were just odd.

Holly Black swept me up in her tale of friendship, growing up and ghosts. I was brought back to my own adolescence and truly felt our heroes' heartbreak- be it the broken relationship between an abandoned son & his dad, the grief of an orphaned girl managing an overbearing Grandmother or the runt of a family of delinquents who doesn't want to end up like them.
