My friend Stan, who is a youth services librarian, recommended this book to me ages ago. It was also one of the AudioBookSync books for this past summer. It took me a few months, but I finally got around to it. Here’s what I thought.
#bookaday Bone Gap by Laura Ruby. I loved the veiled Greek mythological allusions in this story. Roza, a girl who randomly appeared in a small town who quickly becomes beloved by just about everyone, goes missing. And when she goes missing, all the flowers and plants that she helped cultivate begin to wither and die. So that aspect I loved, and I loved the sense of what Bone Gap the town was. I didn’t really feel like the magical world - the world accessed within the corn fields, was super developed. While I could picture Bone Gap in my head, I had a harder time with the magical world told from Roza’s perspective. #stickynotereviews #bonegap #bookstagram
