Maren Yearly is a young woman who wants the same things we all do. She wants to be someone people admire and respect. She wants to be loved. But her secret, shameful needs have forced her into exile. She hates herself for the bad thing she does, for what it's done to her family and her sense of identity; for how it dictates her place in the world and how people see her - how they judge her. She didn't choose to be this way.
Because Maren Yearly doesn't just break hearts, she devours them. Ever since her mother found Penny Wilson's eardrum in her mouth when Maren was just two years old, she knew life would never be normal for either of them. Love may come in many shapes and sizes, but for Maren, it always ends the same-with her hiding the evidence and her mother packing up the car.
But when her mother abandons her the day after her 16th birthday, Maren goes looking for the father she has never known, and finds much more than she bargained for along the way.
Faced with a world of fellow eaters, potential enemies, and the prospect of love, Maren realizes she isn't only looking for her father, she's looking for herself.
Camille DeAngelis' Bones & All is an astonishingly original coming-of-age tale that is at once a gorgeously written horror story as well as a mesmerizing meditation on female power and sexuality.

I LOVED THIS!!!!! RECOMMEND!!!!
It was an interesting and really weird story...Maren is a tough little cookie...good thing or she would have never survived this...
The ending when she warns him....the ending line of this book was awesome!
I have listened to several of Julia's performances...she was actually the reason I gave this book a chance....and I am glad I did!
I dont think this is an appropriate question for this book..LMAO!!!!!
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
This is an interesting take of cannibalism in everyday society...Maren has been this way since birth, causing her mom to move around all the time to protect her child....well when Maren turns 16...her mom has had enough and leaves her to fend for herself...leaving a note saying she was sorry, and some cash with Maren's birth certificate....Maren goes in search of her mother, and her unknown father...meeting others like her along the way and learning there is more people out there like her than she had ever known..
IT WAS A GREAT BOOK AND THE NARRATION WAS SUPERB!!!! I RECOMMEND...AND I WOULD LIKE MORE!!!!
A TASTY TREAT or THE SOFTER SIDE OF CANNIBALISM
