It’s Friday the 13th! Looking for your next dark, thrilling fantasy? Then you need Not Even Bones by Rebecca Schaeffer. meets This Savage Song in this story about a girl who sells magical body parts on the black market—until she’s betrayed.
Nita doesn’t murder supernatural beings and sell their body parts on the internet—her mother does that. Nita just dissects the bodies after they’ve been “acquired.” Until her mom brings home a live specimen and orders Nita to start cutting off pieces. Dissecting a teenage boy who won’t stop begging for help is a step too far. Nita wants out. But when she decides to save her mother’s victim, she ends up sold in his place—because Nita herself isn’t exactly “human.” She has the ability to alter her biology, an ability that is priceless on the black market. Locked in a cage of her own, she struggles to escape. And to do that, Nita must ask herself if she’s willing to become the worst kind of monster.
Will Staehle created the cover art.
“I love how eye catching the cover is,” said author Rebecca Schaeffer. “The bit of blood on an otherwise monochrome background really makes it pop. The colors, simplicity and font choices give it an ominous atmosphere that really matches the tone of the novel.”
Not Even Bones releases from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on September 4.
