Publisher Description

"Twisty, grisly, genre-bending and immersive, Not Even Bones will grab you by the throat and drag you along as it gleefully tramples all of your expectations." —Sara Holland, New York Times best-selling author of Everless
Dexter meets This Savage Song in this dark fantasy about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market — until she’s betrayed.
 
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” Until her mom brings home a live specimen and Nita decides she wants out; dissecting a scared teenage boy is a step too far. But when she decides to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold in his place—because Nita herself isn’t exactly “human.” She has the ability to alter her biology, a talent that is priceless on the black market. Now on the other side of the bars, if she wants to escape, Nita must ask herself if she’s willing to become the worst kind of monster.

Amazing read this

4.5 Stars!!

This was a whole new world full of dark characters and gruesome work. The characters did what they had to do, and didn't hold back. I loved all the different types of unnaturals in this story, they really illustrated the whole idea of moral ambiguity. Nita's struggle with her own moral dilemma was a little overdone for me at times, but that was really the only thing I didn't love about this story. Luckily, there is a certain zannie that I just fell in love with, that made up for that.

I really enjoyed how the author tied in some religious history into the storyline. There was also a subtle acknowledgement of the problematic gender roles of our society, and how we as humans can be selective in who we bestow empathy upon.

Overall, this is a dark young adult novel that is absolutely thrilling. The characters are going off their base instincts, and holding nothing back!
