MARROW by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG. I just finished reading this amazing book and needed a moment to let it all sink in...


Okay. I'm ready to talk about this trippy book.

Firstly, I love this:

In the Bone there is a house.
In the house there is a girl.
In the girl there is a darkness.

And secondly, I LOVE the cover. It's what I like to call creepy pretty. And captures the feel of the book.

Margo lives in a crappy place everyone calls the Bone. She lives inside what she calls the eating house with her detached mother, who only orders her around but doesn't actually talk, listen or even looks at her.

In spite of her sad home life, Margo still manages to make it through school and get a job. She's also caring, and hates injustice against innocent people. Plus she has a great friend she loves spending time with. Judah is in a wheelchair, but he doesn't let that get in the way of living a full life.

The day a local girl she knows disappears, Judah and Margo decide to do whatever they can to help find her. What she discovers changes her forever, and turns her into a calculated vigilante...

Wow. This story is awesome! I loved Margo. She's such an awesome character with a huge character arc. I also loved Judah. I loved the way the story was written. Loved how the story unfolded. AND, I LOVED how everything gets turned upside down and inside out. Until I had to go back to a few places in the story to double check a few things.


I absolutely love stories like these. I always enjoy books that make you doubt your perception. And BLOWS YOUR MIND!

Oh, and I found out that Mud Vein fits in with this book, so I just bought it. Can't wait to read it as well.

I seriously loved this book!
