Publisher's Summary

Bone Gap is the story of Roza, a beautiful girl who is taken from a quiet Midwestern town and imprisoned by a mysterious man, and Finn, the only witness, who cannot forgive himself for being unable to identify her kidnapper. As we follow them through their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, and 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.

What the Critics Say

"Bone Gap marks Laura Ruby as one of fiction's most original voices. She is capable of moving you to tears, terrifying you on deep and dreamlike levels, and making your heart shout with happiness. This audiobook is magic realism at its most magical." (E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars)

    Story
    "Beauty is In the Eye of the Beholder"

    Bone Gap is a quirky, odd tale of two broken brothers, a kidnapped girl, and the "ugly" girl in town. It is written like a fable and the author uses the occasional, surreal imagery to get across his point. You have to be willing to suspend disbelief at times to ascertain the meaning. Like all good authors, he leaves little bits to muse and figure out later and like all good titles, "gap" has more than one meaning. If you don't like weird, then this is not the book for you.

    Story
    "Bone Gap - Truly Enchanting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writing was beautiful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's not possible to pick one scene but the most chilling would be when Finn is looking for Rosa amongst the bodies hanging upside down.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Other worlds are closer than you think.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot even explain how much I loved this book. I can't list all the reasons why, either. It's less like a book and more like an experience. A journey. An enchantment. A mystery. I liked it so much that I'm sad it's over. I haven't read a book this interesting and beautiful in a long time. I may even have to read it again!
