Bone Talk by Candy Gourlay is a gripping novel that takes place in 1899 on a solitary island isolated from the known world. Samkad is a boy of around eleven. His best friend, Luki, is a girl with the same intentions as him: become a warrior. But when Americans come to the village, Samkad must learn who to trust and who to doubt. Gift bringers with fire weapons may not be the best people to trust, and what about a long-lost half brother? This novel makes you laugh, cry, wince, and is virtually impossible to put down. I greatly recommend this book and give it nine out of ten stars.
