“Ruby’s novel deserves to be read and reread. It is powerful, beautiful, extraordinary.”—School Library Journal

Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps.

So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. But Finn knows what really happened to Roza. He knows she was kidnapped by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember.

As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap, acclaimed author Laura Ruby weaves a tale of the ways in which the face the world sees is never the sum of who we are.

    I really liked the magical realism part of the story. It was like a fairytale I had never read before, or even anything like it. The parts that weren’t magical realism, however, just weren’t for me. I felt like those parts had too much romance for me.

      This book is the kind that is hard to put down, the one that makes you just absolutely HAVE to know what happens. It grasps you and holds tight and when your done it still holds on to you as you still think about it and how everything slowly pieced together. It's a mind twisting mysterey about a boy named Fin, and a girl named Roza. It all begins when a mysterious and beautiful polish girl covered in cuts and bruises named Roza appears in the small midwestern town of bonegap. When she is kidnapped her only eye witness is Finn. Who , for the life of him, can identify the kidnapper. We learn of Fin, Roza, and find older brothers unfortunate past. And weave through the love, the heartbreak, the mystery, and the happiness.
