Summary
"Maren Yearly doesn't just break hearts, she devours them. Since she was a baby, Maren has had serious trouble accepting affection. Any time someone gets too close to her, she's overcome by the desire to eat them. Abandoned by her mother the day after her sixteenth birthday, Maren goes looking for the father she has never known, but finds much more than she bargained for along the way. Faced with a world of fellow eaters, potential enemies, and the prospect of love, Maren realizes she isn't only looking for her father, she is looking for herself. The real question is, will she like who she finds?"--Publisher
Summary
In this unusual twist on the coming-of-age tale, 16-year-old Maren Yearly goes looking for her father after being abandoned by her mother, who just couldn't continue protecting Maren. You see, Maren eats those closest to her. On her search for her father, armed with a birth certificate that provides some clues to his identity, Maren meets cannibals like herself, and a young ghoul near her own age joins her on her quest. An entertaining novel with hints of magical realism, Bones & All isn't for the squeamish, but will delight gore lovers. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
