Praise

Praise for Bone Jack:

A 2015 Carnegie Medal nominee
A 2015 Branford Boase Award nominee

“Though this might seem like justanother ghost story, there’s subtle depth here, too, and teen fans of both horror and literary fiction will findlots to like.” —Booklist

“Crowe is a masterly storyteller whose lyrical prose will enthrall young readers. A page-turning and atmospheric offering for middle graders who crave dark fantasy.” —School Library Journal

“Crowe is particularly effective in evoking the sensory elements of the natural world…eminiscent of David Almond’s work in its sensuality and mysticism.” —Horn Book

“British author Crowe crafts a tense, atmospheric tale steeped in folklore, where the setting itself comes alive. It’s a quick but memorable read, and a fascinating take on the power of belief and healing.” —Publishers Weekly


“The action scenes around the chase itself are gripping, with lots of high drama and no guaranteed happy outcome. What’s even more memorable, however, is the lingering feeling of loss that shapes so many lives in this British import; plenty of real-life monsters like war, depression, and isolation haunt people as much as ghostly hound boys.” —BCCB

“[P]owerful and beguiling.” —Telegraph

“A lovely, eerie adventure, balancing the ancient magic with Ash’s very real character growth.” —Kirkus Reviews
