I suggest 7th through 12th grade.
Haunting, cool, zany, funny, creepy, intriguing, thrilling. Laura Ruby’s Bone Gap are all these things.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this for a writing critique group assignment. What I experienced was a book so extraordinary, I had this sense of beauty and unsettlement for days following. And I think it’s pretty awesome when a book leaves you with a feeling of still being connected to it, long after you’ve finished.
So sit down and prepare for a book that is decidedly different. You or your teen are going to be taken for a ride you won’t forget!
Description from B&N:
Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps.
So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. But Finn knows what really happened to Roza. He knows she was kidnapped by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember.
As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap, acclaimed author Laura Ruby weaves a tale of the ways in which the face the world sees is never the sum of who we are.
