In the Bone there is a house.
In the house there is a girl.
In the girl there is a darkness.
Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change. When a neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Neveah Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her.
What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life, she’s determined to find evil and punish it–targeting rapists and child molesters, one by one.
But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.
Unique and Strange
I’m not sure what I just read. It confused me so much near the end. What’s real? What’s not real? I really don’t know anymore. 12 hrs after reading it, and I’m still pondering. “How could that not be real?”
Strange as it was, it certainly pulled you into the story. I had a hard time leaving it behind in between things like going to work, cooking, or showering. It’s unpredictable and it didn’t follow any set pattern. It’s dark but not too dark, not dark like “Captive in the Dark”. It had some thriller elements but not exactly a thriller. It had sweet puppy “friendship” but definitely NOT a romance. It’s a genre of its own.
One thing is for sure, it’s a sad sad tale. Can’t say that I enjoy reading about suffering and hopelessness, but through it you witness how strong the character was, or had become in the end.
