Book Review | Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks

bone.jpgRule of the Bone is the story of a teenage boy who’s confused about life. He’s got his mohawk, his loser friends, and he’s got a couch to sleep on at the den of a local motorcycle gang. A whole lot of things get out of hand – a drug deal gone bad and fatal fire among them – and our boy is sent off wandering the country – and then the world – as he slowly grows up and comes to term with his life. This book is heartbreaking and funny and has such a unique voice. I really enjoyed the slow, convincing character development and the subtle humor. Two thumbs up from this gal.
