Review of Bone Gap by Laura Ruby

by Cindy H | Sep 23, 2016
The breathtakingly beautiful Roza mysteriously appeared in Finn and Sean O'Sullivan's barn one day and seemed to be just what they needed; life had been tough since their father died when they were young and their mother abandoned them. Even though the boys know she must be hiding something they don't care, Roza brings happiness and light to the house and she just seems too good to be true. Until the day she disappears just as mysteriously as she appeared. Finn is the only witness to what really happened that night, but no one believes his story. Can Finn convince the people in Bone Gap that he isn't a liar or crazy? And why does it seem that so many fantastical things seem to happen in this small town?

We get to follow the stories of Finn, Sean, Roza, and some other key players in this mystery. I had a really hard time putting this book down. There are also many twists and turns and surprises that I really did not expect. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an engaging story with just enough fantasy to make you wonder if there are secrets in the world.
