Right, who stole Monday to Saturday? Huh? C’mon, ‘fess up!
I know, it was the Bullshit boogey-monster right?
Well, none of that today. No way. Not here. (can’t promise there won’t be a few typos, still being in a sling, but no crap. Promise.)
So, what is in store for you today? Ah, well you might ask.
Young adult today. And not just any old Young Adult offering. Oh no. The TOTALLY awesome ‘Bone Dressing‘ from Michelle Brooks.
The title alone is enough to make you slide a little further beneath the sheets and the cover sends you all the way.
From the opening paragraph which finds Syd sat atop a building watching her school burn, this book grabs you tight and doesn’t let go, at all.
Brilliant, clever and totally absorbing, Bone Dressing is a dark, ethereal tale of past lives and love.
Here’s the pitch thingy:
Time is running out … the Dark that’s been chasing Syd for many lifetimes has finally caught up with her …Sydney Roberdeau lost her parents as a young girl. Waiting for her life to start and the freedom that will come with her eighteenth birthday, Syd spends much of her time haunting the local cemetery. It is there, stretched out among the dead, that she feels most alive, most at home. Until one rainy night when Beau, Sarah and T.J. crash her ghostly sanctuary, appearing out of nowhere, turning her already inside-out world one degree past upside down.Syd must now revisit past lives, dressing in the bodies of her previous selves … bone dressing. Her only chance to outrun the evil breathing down her neck is to face her own worst nightmares and her strongest desires. But if she can’t stay out of trouble in this life, how can she possibly fix mistakes from past lives? And just how many lives has she lived, loved and lost? What is Syd exactly, and what will she risk for the life of a man she doesn’t remember, the man she spent a lifetime with, the man she loves? Everything … including her very own life?
Bone Dressing, the first in a series of seven books, will carry Syd and Beau on an adventure that transcends life itself.
