About the Bones (Paperback)
When bones from a small hand are found in Elliot Collins’ backyard, he doesn’t know what to think. His home on Reading Island has always been safe and secure and the cleanest place in all of Maine. But when his little brother’s best friend Joe goes missing, Elliot begins to wonder if Reading Island might not be as perfect as everyone makes it out to be.
In this spine-tingling mystery by debut author Olivia Peelen, Elliot and his friends join together to ask: Where did Joe go, and what about the bones?
About the Author
Although Olivia Peelen recently graduated from Falmouth High School in Maine, she draws most of her inspiration from her childhood in Queens, New York. Growing up on the same street as a funeral home, Olivia always wondered if all the bodies made it to the cemetery, or if some of their bones were left in the big blue dumpster that she walked past every day. About the Bones is her first novel.
