Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Throughout this book I went from loving to being confused to not caring and back again. Perhaps the magical realism needed a bit more magic, or the realistic parts needed to be more clearly separated? For example, the whole castle sequence was interesting, but it wasn't clear if that was a hallucination or reality or magical realism or a combination. Readers may have to go back a few times to figure out which portions are which. On the other hand, I did love the bees!
