  • Child of Infamy

    Little Bones, the daughter of Mr. Bones doesn't relish her fame. So much so that she changes her name and doesn't ever mention her father. A new podcast changes her anonymity forever. She's outed. Now her new family, her friends, and her coworkers will all know who she is and where she came from. Their reactions are pretty harsh. I get it, to an extent. However, these people need mirrors. The story drags us through what happens to Little Bones, Cherrie, Leigh-Ann...whoever...when the world discovers who she is, more children go missing, and she has a loss of her own. Some of the reactions are ridiculous. I would have definitely cut some people out of my life here. But Cherrie doesn't really react in a logical way, either. This book didn't know who it was. It kept changing its mind and while it did so, it also managed to get a little repetitive. I liked the idea of what it is like to be the child of a notorious killer. It has some real possibilities and other authors have done the same with differing success. This one worked much of the time. A few eye-rolls. Overall, a quick tale of how people get their (fake) news and how easy it is for that to be harmful.

  • Little Bones - Two missing boys....

    Last night, Thomas Doncaster, a boy, aged 10, went missing between 6pm - 8pm. The last known sighting was near his local newsagents on the Rosemount estate . He had originally been out with his older brother but had gone off on his own. Cherrie had a night out with the girls when they went to see Mariah, a medium. They had to fill in forms giving some personal details which seemed strange and she was left to last. It seemed a weird reading and she came away with a ‘warning to guard her son’. The next day Cherrie got to check the news of Thomas’ disappearance. He was still missing but one article mentioned William Hendy, Mr Bones, the serial killer of eleven children in the early 1990’s. It was asking if there was a copycat about? There was a link that brought up another article which showed loads of results including William Hendy, Mr Bones. She spotted a link for a podcast, ‘The Flesh on the Bones’ and read the summary. Jai Patel wrote and narrated it. She had to listen, you see Mr Bones was her dad! Her real name was Leigh-Ann Hendy, her nickname at school was Little Bones and when she was 17 years old, she changed her name legally to Cherrie Forrester. Leo, her partner, knew nothing of her past and now she’s listening to it being broadcast on this podcast! Everyone around her will know the truth, he stated her new name, roughly where she lived and where she worked. Customers were scarce enough. she hadn’t spoken to her dad since his trial. Cherrie saw a sign advertising Clives Crazy fair at Black Friars Park and thought it would be nice to take Robin. When she asked him, he was keen to go. When Friday night came, they got to the ground and bought their tickets. Tea Cups were first, Ghost train was next. A skeleton got in with us and left with a ‘see you soon’. They then did the carousel and finally joined the queue for the Ferris Wheel. When they reached the front of the queue, her phone pinged and she was trying to make sense of the message from Leo. He knew her secret. Robin handed his ticket over to the attendant. How? Oh my god. Where was Robin? Where had my son gone? This one got you thinking, lots of emotions although only fiction! Well thought out and written to play on those feelings. Must have done some research for this book and it certainly shows in the detail. I quite enjoyed it as there was lots going on to keep your mind ticking over.

  • emotional rollercoaster

    I really thought I knew the "who did it" pretty early in this book and man was I wrong! Cherrie Forrester has been trying to make a new, quiet life for herself after changing her name to separate herself from her infamous serial killer father Mr. Bones. Things are going well, until a young boy in her town disappears and a podcast catches win of similairities and exposes Cherrie's true identity to the world. If that isn't enough, Cherrie's young son Robin disappears with little to no leads. This story took me on an emotional rollercoaster (or ferris wheel if we are making puns from the book). I couldn't put the second half down.
