On the surface, Maren Yearly seems like an ordinary sixteen-year-old girl: bookish and shy, with a predilection for head-to-toe black. She and her mother move from state to state, school to school and job to job, and while the girl does make friends from time to time, she has an awful lot of trouble keeping them. Maren wears black so the blood won’t show. Bones & All follows this introverted girl-monster as she meets fellow eaters and potential victims on a search for the father she never knew. And when her travels are finished, Maren must confront the horrific birthright she’d give anything to erase. Written in the first year after the author went vegan, Bones & All is more than a meditation on feminine power and sexuality: it’s about why we eat flesh.
