The Bone Dragon is special. Read it.,
This review is from: The Bone Dragon (Paperback)
The Bone Dragon is wonderful, magical, touching, mysterious, fantastic, unique and so many other words I could use. I love this book. It will be a story that will forever have a special place in my heart.
Considering how much I adore Evie and her story I was expecting this review to be easier to write. But I don't think I can do it justice, there is so much about Alexia Casale's book that is truly outstanding. I feel I should be filling pages of how effective and beautiful her writing is. Highlight paragraphs to showcase this. Discuss the brilliance of the Dragon. None of that touches on the human characters within The Bone Dragon or the story.
Evie is a rare gem in narrator, both lovable and true. There is a moment in the second half of the book where Evie's anger gets the better of her. I won't go into details but it that moment alone held everything I love about her. It's not just Evie of course, it's her adoptive parents, Uncle Ben, Ms Winters, Evie's friends. Everyone and everything about this book fits.
I'll stop gushing now but honestly The Bone Dragon is special. Read it.
