“Ruby’s novel deserves to be read and reread. It is powerful, beautiful, extraordinary.”—School Library Journal

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Captivating This book was assigned for a book club I'm a part of, at first I was skeptical,as it began with the main character talking to corn. But as I read on, I was intrigued by Laura Ruby's storytelling. I loved this book, but the climax was actiually pretty disappointing, what with the whole fantasy world thing, which I wasn't expecting at all. But overall, it was a great read and I sped through it in one sitting - something I haven't been able to do in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This book was pure magic in the form of awesomeness. It was full of rich, yet understated, human characters, and nearly every single one defied stereotype or cardboard-cut-out syndrome. It was n kind, and thoughtful, and magical and resonant. It was a fresh take on an old myth without ever labelling it, and had about the perfect amount of weirdness going on. The prose was sharp and effective, witty and lush, and even though it wasn't a short book, I raced through it because it was just so comfortable and entrancing. It was just really, really lovely and I never wanted it to end. I wish I could go back and read it fresh again, because it was just so good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Young fantasy, but strange.. Just okay. It was in my pile of books to read and I didn't read what it was about before I started and didn't remember what it was supposed to be, which is sometimes good and sometimes bad. In this case, I wasn't prepared for the young adult/fantasy genre of it and wasn't in the right mood for it. Parts of it intrigued me, like Petey and her bees and when they find out Finn's condition. But most of it was too fantasy-world and couldn't keep me invested. I'd recommend for a younger audience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really weird... I bought this book a few weeks back and recently just finished it. I was not a fan of it. To start it was not anything like the summary on the cover (which left out the part of this confusing magical world). Then as I was first reading it, it was super boring but I wanted to find out what had happened to Roza (which is really the only draw to the book). It leads you through a lot of really useless information from other characters point's of view, and finally at the very end it goes off the deep end into this weird world which just confuses you even more. Overall I definitely do not recommend this book.
