The Kneebone Boy | [Ellen Potter]

The Kneebone Boy

Life in a small town can be pretty boring when everyone avoids you like the plague. But after their father unwittingly sends them to stay with an aunt who’s away on holiday, the Hardscrabble children take off on an adventure that begins in the seedy streets of London and ends in a peculiar sea village where legend has it a monstrous creature lives who is half boy and half animal.

In this wickedly dark, unusual, and compelling novel, Ellen Potter masterfully tells the tale of one deliciously strange family and a secret that changes everything.

    "Great story, dreadful narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The story is gorgeous, but I'd recommend buying the book. The narrator was hands down the worst I've ever heard, putting on an atrociously overdone English accent (pronouncing Otto as Auto and atlas as artlars). Her performance was stilted, droning, and overall terrible.
