In the Bone there is a house. In the house there is a girl. In the girl there is a darkness.
Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn't spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It's not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change.
When a neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Neveah Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her. What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life she's determined to find evil and punish it - targeting rapists and child molesters one by one. But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.

"HUH?? I'm so confused LOL"
Here is another book by Tarryn that I just don't think I completely get! It kept me interested from the beginning and I was enthralled throughout because I had no Idea what was real and what wasn't. I don't think I really grasped what the author was trying to say but that is about me and not her writing style. If it's not black and white, I don't always get it. I will say this was a complete mind f*ck! I love Tarryn's writing style!
The narration was good and fit the character perfectly!
"Loved this journey!"
What a trip! This excellent narration carried the story along swiftly and expertly. You can't help but love the main character and all her flaws. Only one part of the book left me slightly confused so I may return to it again to see if there was something I missed. Overall, I was fully involved in this story and wanted it to go on & on - perhaps there is a Margo part 2 in the works? I hope so.
"Not My Favorite"
I feel that the writing was juvenile while trying desperately to be deep & mature. I don't think this story was nearly as good as it could have been. The writer tried too hard & I think it made the story fall flat in areas that should have been exciting & descriptive. Some parts I feel deserved a lengthy explanation were casually passed over, and left me throwing my hands up in the air feeling like I missed an entire chapter.
I don't see why not. Although the writing wasn't my favorite I enjoyed her creativity.
Weird. Choppy. Inconsistent. The narrator would pronounce names a certain way through half the book and then all of a sudden pronounce them differently and then switch back at the end. It was very distracting. At some parts it sounded like she was stumbling through through the book, like she lost her place. Not my favorite narrator.
I liked the plot a lot, I enjoyed the creativity, I just think it could have been executed a lot better.
This book was incredible and the storyline was a roller coaster! I could hardly put it down!
"Amazing and different"
emotional, surprising, disturbing
no other book I can think of
I don't have one favorite
Here is my full review from Amazon:
This book is so different from any other book I have read. It is disturbing, gut-wrenching, emotional, beautifully written, the words, the feelings.....I can't seem to get my thoughts together about this book.
I wanted to like Margo and I did like her, then I hated her decisions, hated her actions, hated the way she was making me cringe inside. Was Judah real or not? Is he a figment of her imagination? Is he truly there?
Dr. Saphira Elgin is in this book. The first Tarryn Fisher book I read was Mud Vein, and to have Dr Elgin in this book surprised me, but made me doubt everything she said. It gave me such a sense of uncertainty. Is the Doctor "good" or is she as her character is in Mud Vein? I doubted everything she said to Margo, I doubted the thoughts she put in Margo's head.
The absolutely horrendous things that Margo does in this book is in retaliation to horrendous things done to the less fortunate. Women who were raped, children who were abused, people who have done "wrong". In a sense, she behaves like a superhero for the people she feels need vengeance.
Terryn Fisher's ability to write a character that brings out such emotion in her readers is incredible. The writing is incredible. This book is going to stay with me for a long time. There is no HEA in this book and there isn't supposed to be.
Read this book. Read it to get out of the usual formula of romance, YA, and even mystery. READ THIS BOOK.
