Not yet rated | write a review

Alexandra's beloved grandfather was fond of saying, Life is full of surprises, and sometimes the good and the bad get all bunched up together. However, he could not have prepared her for the death of her father, a man she never knew, and his legacy -- a cabin on prairie land formerly owned by the LaFreniere family.

Lonny LaFreniere's stepfather is the kindest man Lonny has ever known. But Lonny, tormented by guilty memories and visions he can't shake, rejects the land Pop always wanted to pass on to him. How could he have known it would end up in the hands of a city girl like Alexandra Sinclair? Acclaimed author Martha Brooks tells an unforgettable story about two teens and their quest to understand the land and each other.

From Our Editors

Erin tries to convince her father not to sell the forty acres of scrub land she loves. Rainbow tries to find money for paints and canvass when her mother cannot afford to support her daughter’s dream to paint. Richard hates moving to another city with his mom where he has to baby-sit, while Marianne tries to stop Billy from pelting a wolf so he can buy a pair of skates. Martha Brooks’ stories in Bone Dance engage kids with situations and realistic dialogue they can relate to-- coping with people, finding the money and adapting to new situations.
