Praise for Bones of a Saint

“Grant Farley’s Bones of a Saint has the gritty, filmic quality of small time Orson Wells border hoods meets S.E Hinton good-boy-gone-wrong sincerity. It’s an atmospheric read—more like you are stuck in a box full of rocks than in a book—a niche world of small gains with tragic consequences. The story reads fast and tight and colorful and your eyes always feel low to the ground. The dusty landscape and every object and every person, and even hope itself, pulls you forward toward an ending which is like the sting of a scorpion. You may not see yourself in this book, but the book never lets you out of its sight.”
—Jack Gantos

Bones of a Saint reads like a dream—I found myself muttering the word ‘wow’ over and over as I read. My favorite stories are coming-of-age ones that find a new way into the teenage struggle, a new lens through which to view the fight for one’s innocence against the adult world’s corruption and chaos. Bones of a Saint is exactly that, but there’s something else—a grittiness and an honesty that earns the reader’s trust from page one. It’s like nothing I’ve read in years.”
—John Corey Whaley, National Book Award finalist for Noggin and winner of the Printz Medal for Where Things Come Back

“Surreal but at the same time so real, and intensely meaningful. This is the kind of book no one writes anymore, but that everyone wants—and needs—to read.”
—Maggie Thrash, Los Angeles Times Book Prize nominated author of Honor Girl
