A Contemporary Coming of Age NA Novel
Marlow has always been fascinated with bones. To her, they're no big thing and everything. Bones are things that everybody has – even the dead. Yet, they're responsible for most of her problems.
The daughter of a mortician, Marlow has spent enough time with the cold bodies in the funeral home to be comfortable with the dead. In fact, the stiffs in the viewing room downstairs are some of her awkwardly-mute best friends. She certainly doesn't have many of those at school. Not with her condition.
But things are about to change.
Tired of the daily scene at Kennedy High School, Marlow looks forward to her next bone density test where she'll finally get answers about her condition. There, she hopes to learn more about idiopathic juvenile osteoporosis and the strand of it she has. With the right answers, she just knows the dead can help her. They have to. It's not like they can object.
Marlow has a plan.
What happens when the living and the dead collide?
Will the pretty bones be enough to change a life?
