Bone Song : v. 14 Paperback
Part of the Cutting Edge series
Melissa and Dobie can't believe they're in detention together.
They hate each other, and couldn't be more different!
Rebellious Dobie despises her wealthy background and has just lost the chance to be a professional dancer.
Melissa is smart, sensible, and always doing her best to compensate for a life on the run with her alcoholic mother.
Yet in between the anger and disappointment there's common ground.
Once, they both had dreams - what went wrong? They forge an unlikely friendship that gives both of them the strength not to give up on their dreams.
But circumstance, and the past, conspire to challenge their resolve right through to the dramatic climax of the story.
Bone Song is a compelling, harrowing, yet moving page-turner.
With two narrators, two engaging voices, and two intertwined personal stories, it delves right to the heart of two young, broken lives, against a back-drop of family turmoil, abuse, cynicism, jealousy, love and hate.
Gritty, honest, hard-hitting, often despairing, sometimes hopeful, it is packed with drama, suspense and emotion from one page to the next.
Bone Song is a title in the highly contemporary Cutting Edge fiction series for young adults. The series features fast-paced quick reads. Each book focuses on difficult topics and situations that many teenagers will have experienced first-hand or through friends.
Bone Song is ideal for readers aged 14+ with a reading age of 12+.
