Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Maren Yearly is a young woman who wants the same things we all do. She wants to be someone people admire and respect. She wants to be loved. But her secret, shameful needs have forced her into exile. She hates herself for the bad thing she does, for what it's done to her family and her sense of identity; for how it dictates her place in the world and how people see her - how they judge her. She didn't choose to be this way. Because Maren Yearly doesn't just break hearts, she devours them. Ever since her mother found Penny Wilson's eardrum in her mouth when Maren was just two years old, she knew life would never be normal for either of them. Love may come in many shapes and sizes, but for Maren, it always ends the same-with her hiding the evidence and her mother packing up the car. But when her mother abandons her the day after her sixteenth birthday, Maren goes looking for the father she has never known, and finds much more than she bargained for along the way. Faced with a world of fellow eaters, potential enemies, and the prospect of love, Maren realizes she isn't only looking for her father, she's looking for herself. Camille DeAngelis' Bones & All is an astonishingly original coming-of-age tale that is at once a gorgeously written horror story as well as a mesmerizing meditation on female power and sexuality.
Review Quote*[DeAngelis] successfully blends metaphor with the macabre… genuinely entertaining… Delicious fun. - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A commentary on young women's sexuality, reliance on self, and being about who you are rather than where you came from… This novel is unique, edgy, and not to be missed!" - RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars, "Top Pick" "Maren's loneliness makes her a vulnerable and completely believable protagonist… DeAngelis doesn't shy away from Maren's dark nature but manages to keep her sweet… giving us a portrait of a young girl who wants to fit in." - Library Journal
