What Are You Reading?

I recently started and now have finished a great book and thought I would share it with everyone. Doll Bones by Holly Black is a great read for those who like a book that is a bit creepy and has a little mystery. It is a 2014 Newbery Honor Winner and with good reason! As much a coming of age story as it is about a ghosts. I got caught up and couldn't put the book down. Come in and check out this great book! A mixture of scary story and adventure that will keep you hooked until the end.
"Zach, Poppy, and Alice have been friends forever. And for almost as long, they’ve been playing one continuous, ever-changing game of pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors. Ruling over all is the Great Queen, a bone-china doll cursing those who displease her.
But they are in middle school now. Zach’s father pushes him to give up make-believe, and Zach quits the game. Their friendship might be over, until Poppy declares she’s been having dreams about the Queen—and the ghost of a girl who will not rest until the bone-china doll is buried in her empty grave.
Zach and Alice and Poppy set off on one last adventure to lay the Queen’s ghost to rest. But nothing goes according to plan, and as their adventure turns into an epic journey, creepy things begin to happen. Is the doll just a doll or something more sinister? And if there really is a ghost, will it let them go now that it has them in its clutches?"
