In the Bone there is a house. In the house there is a girl. In the girl there is a darkness. Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change.
This book started with Margo being 13 years old, it followed her life year by year up until she was an adult. This didn’t make the book drag!
Margo had a sad and hard life, the absence of a father who she eventually meets and is even more disappointed, her mother is a prostitute who treats her badly, her mother doesn’t leave the house, she treats Margo as her personal slave, she doesn’t provide for Margo, it impacts Margo’s life hugely.
When Margo meets Judah they build a friendship that makes where they live that little bit better, The Bone, The place they love is filled with drug addicts and criminals, they want to get out of it.
I loved the twists in this book, the dark path that Margo goes down is so well written! I loved reading her thoughts and reasons! Tarryn wrote Margo so well!
The description, dialogue and character development were written brilliantly, the book flowed perfectly.
I enjoyed the cross over character from Mud Vein, I was pleasantly surprised when I read that part!
I was hooked from the beginning, but I will admit that some bits did confuse me a little and even now I’m not completely sure what actually happened! But I loved this book a lot! I give it a big five stars! I couldn’t put it down.
If you like books that aren’t what you think or are expecting I recommend this, go in with an open mind!
