The Bone Gap is a unique and fascinating book that, can I just add, has an amazing front cover! I know covers don’t mean everything but generally when you get a cover this good, with an intriguing title and questions left for the reader in the first chapter, you know it’s going to be a good read. Despite it being an obvious young adult’s book, it is relatively easy to read. Ruby creates magic through the words – every character and plot twist is there for a reason and this becomes more apparent as the book progresses. I really like the quote, ‘the bones of the world were a little looser here… leaving spaces one could slip into and hide…’ – I think this one quote depicts Ruby’s beautiful use of language and the powerful world she creates with it. Whimsical and fantastical, this tale is perfect for a winter’s day read.

I hope everyone’s having a great day! The Sweet Review x
