The Bone Dragon

by Alexia Casale
£6.99   paperback  Faber & Faber (Faber Children's Books) (2014)

The Bone Dragon by Alexia Casale Everyone at school thinks that Evie broke her ribs in a car crash ... Evie doesn't talk about why she was adopted and why she really needed an operation. Because some things should never be said.
 
Now, she is safe and even has a souvenir from hospital - a piece of rib bone, which she carves into a dragon. And it comes to life at night in Dragon-dreams, helping Evie to heal, giving her strength.
 
But some things cannot be fixed. Some things are too terrible to be forgiven. Sometimes, vengeance must be taken and it seems the Dragon is the one to take it, while Evie looks on.
 
This sensitive and extraordinary first novel announces a new literary talent set to join the likes of Meg Rosoff, John Boyne and Siobhan Dowd.
