Book Review – Doll Bones

4 stars. Doll Bones is the deliciously creepy tale of the imaginative game of three longtime friends that takes a very eerie twist. Zach, Poppy, and Alice have dealt with the pressures of growing up through their play, but now that they’re 12, the pressure from Zach’s parents to fit in forces him to stop hanging around with his pals. Then the uncanny china doll in Poppy’s house becomes restless, sending them on a quest to bring her peace.

This book has plenty of adventure, well-conceived characters, a good understanding of what is left behind in growing up, and some wonderfully spooky moments. Imaginatively written, and with some sweet moments as well, Doll Bones is a very enjoyable read of friendship and the supernatural.
