Melissa is a young girl living in fear everyday. She worries about her mum harming herself and her dad finding them. She looks after her mum, not the other way around. They are on the run, after her father threatened to kill her mother next time. He has found them many times since, with them barely escaping. Melissa keeps her head down at school, feeling unable to have friends. All she cares about is her mum.
That changes when she ends up in detention with the school troublemaker Dobie. Somehow, they get talking and Dobie realises there is a lot more to Melissa and that like her, she could really do with a friend. Dobie is from a wealthy background, but her mother loathes her and her father has given up on her. They want to send her back to boarding school, somewhere she hated. Dobie fights to stay where she is and get out of Melissa what is really going on.
Bone Song is an engaging, non-stop read. The friendship is convincingly portrayed and heartfelt. The physical abuse is not over the top, while presenting the terror and the difficulty of the situation they face. It is a great story that everybody should read.

This is a book that I found I could put down and leave and go back to anytime, did not find it too enthralling and therefore only gave it 3 stars

The actual story line is really good and i did enjoy the book but it needed more detail about the events and the ending was quite abrupt.
