In the Bone there is a house.
In the house there is a girl.
In the girl there is a darkness.
Margo is not like other girls. She lives in a derelict neighborhood called the Bone, in a cursed house, with her cursed mother, who hasn’t spoken to her in over two years. She lives her days feeling invisible. It’s not until she develops a friendship with her wheelchair-bound neighbor, Judah Grant, that things begin to change. When neighborhood girl, seven-year-old Nevaeh Anthony, goes missing, Judah sets out to help Margo uncover what happened to her.
What Margo finds changes her, and with a new perspective on life, she’s determined to find evil and punish it–targeting rapists and child molesters, one by one.
But hunting evil is dangerous, and Margo risks losing everything, including her own soul.
First I want to start by saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my favorite authors!!!!!! What a wonderful present to US (the readers!), on your birthday, to release Marrow (and Margo!)
I was privileged to read an ARC copy of this book and my review will be short because this is another book by Tarryn that needs to be read without knowing what happened, so that the reader can get the full effect of what the author intended.
We meet Margo and are sucked into her world living in the Bone. She lives with her mother who is no real mother figure and her life is sad and real. One thing that Tarryn always does so well is making the reader feel and truly experience the life of the characters that she creates. And I lived Margo’s life and felt the heartbreak and pain and above all the depths of despair of living such a hard life.
The little ray of sunshine in Margo’s life is Judah, a guy in a wheelchair who lives down the road from her. They build a friendship that is protective and safe and is the happiness that Margo needs to allow for a smile to be on her face and light in her life.
In true Tarryn Fisher fashion, there is meaning to every.little.thing and not everything is what it seems. If you like books that make you think, books with many layers and books that leave you guessing, I encourage you to read Marrow and get to know Margo.
There are many ways I can describe this book. Different, unexpected and surprising. Mysterious and suspenseful. Fans of Mud Vein will definitely enjoy Marrow.
Tarryn Fisher is a genius and a must click author for me. Her stories and masterful way she writes captivates me EVERY SINGLE TIME.
