My Review: Bone by Bone is an exceptional debut psychological thriller which is extremely dark and disturbing. This book affected me very deeply and I have been trying to work out why. I think it’s simply because the storyline was so plausible and as a mother I was able to relate to it. Dealing with being a single mum in a new city with no support network and finding out her 9 year old daughter is being bullied Laura tries to protect her child at any cost. A highly gripping and tense thriller which is going into my Top Twenty Reads of 2016
