Doll Bones

Holly Black

Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends forever, playing the same make-believe games involving pirates, mermaids, and the Great Queen, a china doll at Poppy's house. Now that they're 12, Zach's father demands he give up his action figures and "grow up." The girls convince Zach to join them on one last quest - a road trip to get rid of the ghost possessing Poppy's porcelain doll. Part fantasy, part reality, the kids reveal their varied backgrounds and the pain of leaving their childhood games behind. From the author of the Spiderwick Chronicles, this powerful tale is spooky and captivating. Ages 9-11
