Nobody does spooky like Holly Black. Doll Bones is a book that will make you sleep with the lights on.Spooky, melancholy, elegiac and ultimately hopeful; a small gem.A little bit scary and full of heart, this story grabbed me and wouldn't let go.It's a deep, strange and compelling book, at times lovely, at other times heartbreaking and deliciously weird.With heart-wrenching swiftness, Black paints a picture of friends at the precipice of adulthood . . . The tightly focused, realistic tale – bladed with a hint of fairy-tale darkness – feels cut from the very soul of youth.Compelling, chill-at-the-nape tale with dynamics and emotional depth . . . The novel’s eerie vibe and eek-worthy plot may keep readers turning pages into the wee hours, but it’s the vivid characters and skillfully developed themes of identity, friendship and loss that linger long in the mind.[An] eerie, tender novel.Black poignantly and realistically captures how adolescence inherently brings change; how growing up affects the ways children play; and the inevitable tests friendships face.It's as psychologically haunting as the ghost girl's physical haunting . . . Black begins with an ordinary experience of childhood and gives it a wicked twist to reveal the truth at the center of the impulse for storytelling.A darn good adventure.
