BOOK REVIEW: LIES IN BONE by Natalie Symons
Publisher: Boyle &
Told by a tart-tongued young woman with a love of Bruce Springsteen, Lies in Bone is at once a mystery and a coming-of-age tale fueled by dark secrets involving love, murder, and the truths worth lying for.
On Halloween 1963, 11-year-old Chuck Coolidge and his brother, Danny, are lost in a toxic smog covering the steel town of Slippery Elm, Pennsylvania. When the smog lifts, half the town is sick, and 20 people are dead. And Danny is missing. Now, more than 20 years later, Chuck's teenage daughter, Frank, plots her escape from this "busted and disgusted" town.
When a murdered child is found in the river, investigators link the crime to the disappearance of Danny in '63, and Frank's life is turned upside down. In the face of her worst fears, she must uncover her family's dark past if she wants to keep her sister, Boots, from the hands of the state.
