    10 Reasons Why; NOT to Read this Book!

    1. The book contained 197 pages of boredom
    2. There was no interesting plot or theme involved.
    3. The characters were not interesting to read about.
    4. The main character was a brat and had no morals in the beginning.
    5. The setting was not very exciting.
    6. Although the book was a breeze to read, it was not challenging at all.
    7. Throughout the entire book, nothing really thrilled me.
    8. The moral of the story had nothing to do with the book.
    9. I would not recommend this book to my friends.
    10. Overall, I wasted my time picking this book. The author wrote many other good books, but this one did not satisfy me. Thank you!

    From Tasha at Jenkins Middle School

    Matilda Bone is a religious young woman that has been delievered to Blood and Bone Alley. She is not fitting in well in her new surroundings, being much different than her former life. She has lived with Father Leufradeus and has learned many skills. When she is delievered to Peg, the bone setter she is surprised when she is ordered to accomplish tasks such as cleaning and cooking. Even though Matilda despises Peg she is all the while learning to listen to her heart and make her own decisions.With Father Leufreduas she learns to read and write and she can repeat bible verses like it's the back of her hand.When she first arrives in Blood and Bone Alley she believes that because the people weren't as smart and didn't believe the things she did that they were sins from God. Peg had told Matilda about her husband Tom, who she said was wise. When Tom came home from traveling, Matilda was dissapointed that he could not speak different languages or do the things she could. He was wise in other ways that she did not understand.Matilda later meets a servant girl and soon become friends but when her friend severely injures herself she understands that doctor Margery can care for her even though it means breaking her reputation with the doctor. Matilda neither liked nor needed this doctor, she willingly accepted the weatlthy physician though. Throughout the story you learn about the insecure Matilda and sense the magical feelings of her difficult life. Karen Cushman,the author of many medieval novels including The Midwife's Apprentice, has entertained readers with her sincere way of writing.Matilda learns so many life lessons in Blood and Bone Alley from many people within the busy town. She walks you through her interesting life as you sit back and enjoy the enchanted ride throught the distant medieval world.
