What I Read: Doll Bones, By Holly Black,Genre fantasy 244 pages, 8/10
How It Starts: The Main Characters are three friends Zach, Poppy, and Alice they have been friends forever and they have been playing a continuous game that takes place in a world populated with pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors ruling in this world is a Great Queen the doll who played her was a bone-china doll imprisoned in a cabinet cursing those who displease her.
How It Gets Complicated: Now the three friends are in middle school and Zachs father wants him to drop all of the make believe and all of the dolls and for Zach to play basketball. When Zach’s father gives him no choice he has to quit but he doesn’t tell his friends the real reason. Alice thinks their friendship is over until Poppy tells them about her dream about the queen and the ghost of a girl that will not rest until that doll is put into her empty grave.
What I Liked: I wanted to read this book because it was made by the creator of The spiderwick chronicles I loved that movie when I was a kid and so I thought I would like this book. What made this book enjoyable was that the kids were normal kids and weren’t perfect.
What I Disliked: The kids got annoying sometimes and I got this book a long time ago and I didn’t read it back then so this was kind of kidish for me since its a book for like 6th graders but overall it was a okay book.
Recommendation: I would recommend this book to 7th graders or 6th graders or anybody who likes ghost books.
