A National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature (2015) AND the Michael L. Printz winner for 2016, Bone Gap┬áis a stunning novel.

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.

Blending realism, evocative imagery, and echoes of myth, Bone Gap should not be missed.
