Bone's Gift Hardback
Part of the Ghosts of Ordinary Objects series
In this supernatural historical mystery, twelve-year-old Bone possesses a Gift that allows her to see the stories in everyday objects.
When she receives a note that says her mother's Gift killed her, Bone seeks to unravel the mysteries of her mother's death, the schisms in her family, and the Gifts themselves.
In a southern Virginia coal-mining town in 1942, Bone Phillips has just reached the age when most members of her family discover their Gift.
Bone has a Gift that disturbs her; she can sense stories when she touches an object that was important to someone.
She sees both sad and happy--the death of a deer in an arrowhead, the pain of a beating in a baseball cap, and the sense of joy in a fiddle.
There are also stories woven into her dead mama's butter-yellow sweater--stories Bone yearns for and fears.
When Bone receives a note that says her mama's Gift is what killed her, Bone tries to uncover the truth.
Could Bone's Gift do the same? Here is a beautifully resonant coming-of-age tale about learning to trust the power of your own story.
