SUMMARY

Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps — gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years before, their mother had high-tailed it to Oregon for a brand new guy, a brand new life. That’s just how things go, the people said. Who are you going to blame?

Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turned up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone, and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.

As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap — their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their uncertain futures — acclaimed author Laura Ruby weaves a heartbreaking tale of love and loss, magic and mystery, regret and forgiveness — a story about how the face the world sees is never the sum of who we are.


Why I'm waiting on BONE GAP...

First... DID YOU SEE THAT COVER!!!... BEEEEE!!!!!

Second - Sounds like a very interesting story... what kind of gap are we talking about?
Disappearing forever??? Getting tripped up???... very intriguing!

Last... it's quite obvious that this would initially be a cover-buy for me, lol!
However, "their melancholy pasts, terrifying present and uncertain future" really seals the deal for me! Really need to get my hands on this one soon!!!


SO, what are you waiting for this week?!?!
