Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turned up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone, and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.
As we follow the stories of Finn, Roza, and the people of Bone Gap—their melancholy pasts, their terrifying presents, their uncertain futures—acclaimed author Laura Ruby weaves a heartbreaking tale of love and loss, magic and mystery, regret and forgiveness—a story about how the face the world sees is never the sum of who we are.
- There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, and to me it was a little overrated.
- The book was very different from what I was expecting.
- The writing was very captivating and artistic. The story was interesting and very unique.
- A lot of the symbolism was lost on me. It was just kinda weird to me.
- The ending was very anticlimactic.
- The "magic" was a little weird, and it didn't really fit in with the story. I feel like the characters were on shrooms, absinthe, acid, and any other hallucinogen.
- I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I'm kinda in the middle about this one. I can understand why people loved it, but it was underwhelming to me.
