Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Another day, another tag.
I read a lot of books and, as well as being drawn into the stories and the fantasy worlds within the pages, I love the characters themselves. There are so many characters from my favourite books I’d love to meet, love to spend an afternoon with, love to be my BFF’s, so this was a brilliant tag to be able to take part in. The only issue was narrowing it down to one character per question.
I was tagged in the BFF book tag by Kirstie at Upside-Down Books. Thank you so much for the tag Kirstie; everyone else should definitely check out her original post and her blog, and if you’re not following her already then what are you waiting for?
Title: Bone Gap
Author: Laura Ruby
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: March 3rd 2015
Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps—gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years before, their mother had high-tailed it to Oregon for a brand new guy, a brand new life. That’s just how things go, the people said. Who are you going to blame?
Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turned up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone, and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.
As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap – their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their uncertain futures – acclaimed author Laura Ruby weaves a heartbreaking tale of love and loss, magic and mystery, regret and forgiveness—a story about how the face the world sees is never the sum of who we are.
