The Bone Thief

Written by Alyson Noel

Compared to other more ordinary towns, Quiver Hollows is a very strange, very curious place. It is also home to longtime friends Grimsly, Ollie, Ming, and Penelope. In a town where everyone is spectacularly abnormal, Grimsly feels bad about being terribly, unforgivably normal, as the town’s pet funeral director. So when a series of strange and disturbing mundane occurrences begins plaguing Quiver Hollows, well, Grimsly fears his growing celebrity just might be to blame since everyone knows that the things you focus on the most have an uncanny way of shaping your world.

The group of friends also learn that the bones in the pet cemetery are thought to be the source of the strange magic that binds the town of Quiver Hollows. With the bones now gone, the town’s magic is quickly dissipating. Will it ultimately become as common and ordinary as everywhere else?

I like the adventure in this book. Grimsly lives in a town were weird stuff is normal. With his friends, he sets out to turn it normal again. The characters and animals make the book a lot of fun. I think you will like it too.
