Project Description

Dot, whose name reflects her stature, has always had big dreams—but her dreams have to be put on hold while she searches for the truth about her parents. She gets a job as a seamstress at a lakeside resort in rural Ontario and falls hard for Eddie, a charming local boy who is equal parts helpful and distracting as Dot investigates her past. Searching for answers to questions about her birth, Dot learns more than she ever wanted to about the terrible effects of war, the legacy of deceit—and the enduring nature of love.


Small Bones is part of Secrets, a series of seven linked novels that can be read in any order

It’s 1964 and life is about to change for seven orphan girls. On their own for the first time in their lives, the girls each embark on journeys of discovery, aching for the families they never had and experiencing the world in ways they never imagined.

Authors Kelley Armstrong, Norah McClintock, Vicki Grant, Marthe Jocelyn, Kathy Kacer, Teresa Toten and Eric Walters team up in this brand new series of linked YA novels. Look for Secrets at your book store in Fall 2015.

“In a witty and believable 1964 Ontario, a foundling teen investigates the circumstances of her own birth… The novel has an eerie, slow build, with a sense of danger increasing with each secret unearthed… Clues come at just the right pace for the readers to crack the puzzle right along with the protagonist in this mystery.”
Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2015

“Punctuated with nuggets of fresh and surprising description…In the hands of talented writers, a set of rules can lead to some highly enjoyable and varied reads.”
