Publisher's summary

"Twisty, grisly, genre-bending and immersive, Not Even Bones will grab you by the throat and drag you along as it gleefully tramples all of your expectations." (Sara Holland, New York Times best-selling author of Everless)

Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market - until she's betrayed.

Nita doesn't murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet - her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they've been "acquired". Until her mom brings home a live specimen and Nita decides she wants out; dissecting a scared teenage boy is a step too far. But when she decides to save her mother's victim, she ends up sold in his place - because Nita herself isn't exactly "human". She has the ability to alter her biology, a talent that is priceless on the black market. Now on the other side of the bars, if she wants to escape, Nita must ask herself if she's willing to become the worst kind of monster.

Critic reviews

"Almarie Guerra does an excellent job capturing the dark nature of the book and gives Nita a voice that shows her lack of social skills and her developing conscience.… Mature teens who enjoy morally gray characters and intense suspense will be drawn to the story."
School Library Journal

"[A] morally complex, edgy debut...Schaeffer’s antiheroes show empathy and insight as they struggle to define the line between human and monster. It’s a testament to Schaeffer’s excellent writing that these themes never overtake the characters’ stories."- Booklist, starred review

"The thrilling plot proves thought-provoking." Publishers Weekly
