The Bone Thief by Alyson Noel - ADVISABLE

Noel, Alyson The Bone Thief, 308 pages.  Delacorte (Random), 2017.  $ 17.  Language: G (2 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (some danger, bullying)

Grimsly Summerfield is as ordinary as dirt, while everyone and everything else in Quiver Hollows is amazing and interesting.  His only claim to fame is his pet funeral service that he started three years ago.  His guardian, Snelling, told him to take good care of the bones, but Grimsly doesn’t realize exactly what Snelling means.  When the magic starts disappearing from Quiver Hollows, everyone suspects it has something to do with Grimsly – and they are right,  Someone has been stealing the bones from the cemetery.  If Grimsly can’t stop the thieves his land and probably his friends will die.

Noel has gone in a totally new way for her latest book.  She writes a solid middle grade fantasy book with plenty of adventure and danger.
