Transcript of Bone Gap

Bone Gap
Summary
Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps—gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years before, their mother had high-tailed it to Oregon for a brand new guy, a brand new life. That’s just how things go, the people said. Who are you going to blame?
Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turned up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone, and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.

Recommendation
I would recommend Bone Gap to anyone who is interested in a short read, that has you hooked the entire way. Bone Gap has a great mixture of romance, tragedy and mystery, that keeps you guessing the entire time. Although a short read, it does make you think, as you try and figure out what really happened to Roza with the other characters. Great wording and structure, along with carefully developed characters makes the book a great read.

Roza is one of the main characters in the novel. She is described as such a beautiful character, one whose beauty ends up endangering her. She is originally from Poland, coming to America to increase her education. Roza is incredibly smart, but sometimes her beauty covers up that fact, because all people see her for is beautiful. She ends up being kidnapped and has to uses her intelligence to help her survive.
Scarecrows are a symbol of death and fear. They often represent the gateway to hell.
Horses are known as a spirit animal, a refection of ones inner self. Reflecting the persons passions and desires.
Corn is a symbol of life, fertility and sanctuary. It is seen as the birth place of life and a safe place to all those who grow among it.
Blank Face is as mysterious as his name. He is never given a name throughout the entire novel to give him an anonymous appearance, making him blend into the background. This is important for him as he often disappears under the watch f many people in the town of Bone Gap. He is the character who takes Roza from Bone Gap, obsessing over her beauty.
Sean O' Sullivan is one of the main characters throughout the novel. He is the typical hero throughout the novel, the character that is always volunteering, providing help for everyone in the small town. He is a paramedic and a volunteer police officer. But when it comes down to the emotional part of it Sean has a difficult time opening up and understanding his own emotions and people who surround him. When Roza leaves him he becomes drawn into himself and appears angry at his younger brother.
Didi is somewhat of a celebrity during this novel, she is mentioned a number of times, but she never actually makes an appearance. She is the type of person that always needs a man, not able not able to rely on herself. So when her husband passes she runs after men all over the country leaving her boys helpless.
Finn is the main character in the novel. He is a bit of an odd ball character, with only one friend and strange habits. Finn is described as beautiful, someone who has godly looks, but not the best mind. It is not that he is not smart, Finn just thinks differently. He is the one who cannot let Roza go, believing that she was kidnapped, not a runaway. Finn holds hope for every character, for Roza and her return, Petey and her future and even for himself.
"You are the most beautiful" (Ruby 88)
"Don't call me Priscilla" (Ruby 137)
"Didi was the kind of women who needed a man" (Ruby 150)
"Finn inherited his mother's delicate features, her dreamy distractibility" (Ruby 150)
"He was still a stranger"(Ruby179)
"He had tried so hard not to despise everyone[...] but he didn't think he could stop himself anymore" (Ruby 157)
"A man like Charlie Valentine , had limited room for memories" (Ruby 275)
Charlie is a strange character throughout the novel. His presence through the first half of the novel is questionable due to his strange appearances and confused rambles. But as the novel comes to a close Charlies character develops as a strong and knowledgible character, that knows more than he his letting on.
Priscilla or as she likes to be called Petey, is a tough character. She is known for her unusual looks and her love for bees. She has never been considered an equal in the small town from the way she looks until she starts to develop a relationship with Finn. From there they both gain confidence from one another.

"But a pretty face is just a lucky accident. Pretty can't feed you. And you'll never be pretty enough for some people"(Ruby 92)
"You are the loveliest creature I have ever seen" (Ruby 180)
Roza is trapped in a world of pain and torture because of her looks. She is not seen as a person only a thing, a creature meant for other peoples pleasure. She is not seen as the intelligent women she is, only for her beauty.
Petey is the opposite of Roza, she is considered ugly and unattractive. When it is publicly announced that Finn and her are a couple, people start to harass Finn, saying that he is using her. The people of Bone gap cannot understand why a beautiful boy would love an girl that is considered ugly. So they believe he is just using her.
