"A little bit scary and full of heart, this story grabbed me and wouldn't let go."--Rebecca Stead, Newbery Award winning author of When You Reach Me
"Nobody does spooky like Holly Black. "Doll Bones "is a book that will make you sleep with the lights on."--Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
"Every encounter redraws the blurry lines between childishness and maturity, truth and lies, secrecy and honesty, magic and madness. Spooky, melancholy, elegiac and ultimately hopeful; a small gem."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
*"It's as psychologically haunting as the ghost girl's physical haunting....Black begins with an ordinary experience of childhood and gives it a wicked twist to reveal the truth at the center of the impulse for storytelling."--Jennifer M. Brown "Shelf Awareness, starred review "
"For the 10-12 year-old reader..."Doll Bones" may be perfect....It's a deep, strange and compelling book, at times lovely, at times heartbreaking and deliciously weird."--Lauren Oliver "New York Times Book Review "
