Doll Bones by Holly Black is a creepy adventure that takes place in the lives of Poppy, Zach, and Alice, three lifelong friends who join forces everyday to play in their world of make-believe. It contains pirates and princesses, bandits and so much more, all over-looked by the bone china doll trapped in a glass cabinet they call “The Queen”. One night Poppy declares she is having dreams about the queen, who is actually an angry spirit that cannot rest until the doll is buried. Is Poppy telling the truth or is it another one of her games? Can the doll really contain actual little girl bones? Set off on this non-stop adventure that is a little creepy but really fun and leaves you wanting more.
