    Highly Recommend

    Enjoyed the story line. This would be good summer reading for children and adults. Once I started reading I did not want to put it down. I had to order the book but hope Barnes & Noble will put it on the shelves.

    Great story telling, well written. I loved this book. Bones and Little Man and their family and friends are characters you won't forget. I feel like the curtains of time and culture were drawn back and I got to see life in the Florida swamplands 50 years ago. A very interesting book. A joy to read.

    So Great!

    Due to the fact this book only has 7 ratings, I am guessing it has been overlooked quite a bit. But that is certainky a mistake! This book will make you fall in love with Bones' sweet personality and innocent curiosity. Her lifestyle is as unique her nickname, which fits her better the more you read. It is a great mystery, seen through one of the most creative viewpoints ever. I highly reccomend!!

    Though I've never been to the Florida swamps - let alone in 1949

    Though I've never been to the Florida swamps - let alone in 1949 - Mika Ashley-Hollinger totally transported me there, into the life of 10 year old Bones and her small family and community of fellow edge-of-swamp dwellers. I felt as though I was 10 again, following Bones past muddy ponds and palmetto roots and listening to her narrate the events that gradually endanger the slow, earthy existence she loves, threatening to break it apart.

    This book is full of delightful characters - from Bones's adored daddy Nolay, her friend Little Man, and war veteran Speed - as well as some shady and unpleasant ones. Bones's voice is flawlessly authentic, and every detail of the story is visceral and heartfelt. I enjoyed every minute of it, and though I finished it a couple of weeks ago, its atmosphere stays with me.
