Doll Bonesby Holly Black
(From Margaret K. McElderry Books.) This creepy chapter book won the 2014 Newbery Honor Medal and is the perfect read for Halloween. Zach, Poppy, and Alice have been friends forever and always find imaginative ways to play with old toys, dolls, and figurines from the Good Will. When Zach's dad pushes him to quit playing make-believe because he's entering middle school, an eerie bone-china doll that the kids have named the Great Queen triggers a ghostly adventure.
