doll bones coverDoll Bones by Holly Black
Recommended for: Grades 5 and up

Zach, Alice & Poppy are long-time friends. Nearly every day they have engaged in imaginative adventure play, but now they are in Middle school.  Zach is being pressured by his Dad to stop playing and interact more with his other friends. Poppy is desperate that they all remain friends. She comes up with a new quest involving the ghost of a murdered girl whose “bones” reside in the Great Queen. They have always been intrigued by the Great Queen – a china doll locked in an old display cabinet at Poppy’s house.
They reluctantly agree to the quest, and set out in the middle of the night taking the Great Queen with them. Almost from the start, things don’t go as planned and creepy events take place. Though disagreements and mistrust soon threaten to end the quest, the three learn a lot about themselves and friendship in the process.
