Precious Bones is a very unique tale about a 10-year-old girl named Bones who lives on the edge of a swamp. Her father, although he seems wise to Bones, is known for his mischievous character across the swamp. And when a dead body is found at the edge of his land, Bones' father becomes the prime suspect. The story is told from Bones' naive perspective as she and her best friend, Little Man, try to save her father from jail and the swamp from disaster. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes Carl Hiaasen books, or just adventure and mystery with a touch of magic and one or two miracles.
