Title: Doll Bones
Author: Holly Black
Release Date: May 7th, 2013
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure and heroism. But disaster strikes when, without warning, Zach’s father throws out all his toys, declaring he’s too old for them. Zach is furious, confused and embarrassed, deciding that the only way to cope is to stop playing . . . and stop being friends with Poppy and Alice. But one night the girls pay Zach a visit, and tell him about a series of mysterious occurrences. Poppy swears that she is now being haunted by a china doll – who claims that it is made from the ground-up bones of a murdered girl. They must return the doll to where the girl lived, and bury it. Otherwise the three children will be cursed for eternity . . .
I saw that this book was written by Holly Black and HAD to add it to my wishlist. It helps that the premise sounds morbid, too. I mean...the idea of a doll made from the bones of a murdered girl? I'm excited to find out the mysteries behind the doll...and look at that cover! I just love it.
What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?
