This stunning and heartbreaking novel is about love, death, and family but more accessible and commercial.

THE SKELETON TREE is a story about a boy who finds a finger bone growing in his back garden. Going deeper, the novel exposes a deep emotional current with life lessons wrapped in a package of whimsy, humor, and mystery—which turns it into a page turning, rewarding, and kid-friendly book. Kim Ventrella has the rare gift of finding a pitch-perfect twelve year old’s voice, infusing innocence, laughter, and that particular wisdom of children into a fantastical story of death and love. She worked as children’s librarian for many years, and this is her debut novel.
