    Doll bones is a very mysterious and scary book when these friends and they were drawn to the fall of the dolls story she had a very tragic ending. Very engaging weird but fun book and the only DCF book i read so i cannot compare.

    I love this book because it’s full of adventure and excitement. Its creepy and mysterious with a swing of happiness. These kids go off showing that they truly are brave with some skittishness. They have a true potential to set a girls spirit free and help someone else find happiness! This book was the very best book I have ever read!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
