Description

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.

This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged.



Reviews

"The destructive power of hatred and the strength of friendship and love are powerfully explored. Bone Song is well written, with strong protagonists who share the narration of the story."
