Praise for BONES & ALL

“[DeAngelis] successfully blends metaphor with the macabre…genuinely entertaining…Delicious fun.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A commentary on young women's sexuality, reliance on self, and being about who you are rather than where you came from...This novel is unique, edgy, and not to be missed!” ―RT Book Reviews, 4.5 Stars, "Top Pick"

“Maren's loneliness makes her a vulnerable and completely believable protagonist...DeAngelis doesn't shy away from Maren's dark nature but manages to keep her us a portrait of a young girl who wants to fit in.” ―Library Journal

“DeAngelis's ability to tell an engaging story that draws the reader in makes this quirky read a real page-turner.” ―NY Journal of Books

“A powerful story of a young woman learning to embrace her deepest secrets, and her darkest needs.” ―Chevy Stevens, bestselling author of Still Missing, Never Knowing and Always Watching

“DeAngelis has invented a fierce new form of human predator.” ―Alissa Nutting, author of Tampa and Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls

“A dark and mesmerizing vision of adolescent desire--this book will devour you.” ―Robin Wasserman, author of The Waking Dark and The Cold Awakening series

“A spellbinding book full of horrors wrapped in sweetness and longing and finding one's way in the world, or maybe it's the other way around.” ―Carolyn Turgeon, author of Mermaid

“A dark and delicious tale full of unexpected twists that will keep readers turning the pages.” ―John Searles, bestselling author of Help for the Haunted and Strange But True

“From its opening, grab-you-by-the-gut paragraph to its chilling, perfect ending, I was captivated by the story of Maren Yearly, a character unlike any I've ever encountered before. Bones & All is a riveting, utterly original, and unexpectedly tender exploration of one of the scariest things in the world: growing up.” ―Elizabeth Little, author of Dear Daughter

Maren Yearly doesn’t just break hearts, she devours them.

Since she was a baby, Maren has had what you might call "an issue" with affection. Anytime someone cares for her too much, she can’t seem to stop herself from eating them. Abandoned by her mother at the age of 16, Maren goes looking for the father she has never known, but finds more than she bargained for along the way.

Faced with love, fellow eaters, and enemies for the first time in her life, Maren realizes she isn’t just looking for her father, she is looking for herself. The real question is, will she like the girl she finds?
