Laura Ruby has written a genre-bending story; fairy tale and mythological elements are interwoven with elements of realism in this wholly original and compelling read.
The real magic in Bone Gap is the discovery of love, an idea many stories misrepresent but Bone Gap explores with the utmost honesty and truth.
[Laura Ruby ]has brought [fantasy and realism] together in a tour de force.
This is an incredibly well-written book [...] Laura Ruby puts magic in the middle of the map with this novel; she has created something beautiful, timeless, and powerful that is classic in every sense of the word.
Locus Full Review
Cleverly conceived and lusciously written
Ruby accomplishes this seemingly impossible feat with an original, well-constructed plot scary enough and honest enough to satisfy teens as well as adult readers.
The Chicago Tribune Full Review
"This mystery story is written with flair, combining
precise observation and poetic flights, as it explores physical passion, a relationship between brothers, and small-town attitudes, with complicated characters, sharp comic dialogue and an emotional kick."
The Sunday Times Full Review
A haunting and inventive work that subverts expectations at every turn.
A strong contender for a top 10 this year.
