"This mystical mystery...effectively evokes the Appalachian culture with written dialect and a cultural emphasis on storytelling that'll snag even history-resistant readers. Readers will definitely invest in Bone's journey. Bone's Gift is just the opening installment of the Ghosts of Ordinary Objects trilogy." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"In a genuine voice that sucks readers into Appalachia during World War II, Smibert tells an absorbing coming-of-age story. The narrative has the feel of the Appalachian folktales that the protagonist loves so much, with a mix of realism and magic. Smibert weaves the folktales intricately into the story. Middle graders won't want Bone's story to end." - School Library Journal

"Part fantasy, part mystery, and part history, Smibert's Bone's Gift will have broad appeal. The descriptive writing makes it easy to imagine living in a coal-mining town in WWII-era Virginia. It is clear that Smibert conducted thorough research to create a realistic setting. Fans of cozy mysteries and time travel will enjoy this book."-VOYA

"This historical fiction story with supernatural elements is the first book in the Ghosts of Ordinary Objects trilogy. The accurate use of Southern Appalachian dialect...gives the book a charming authenticity. The author's note at the end provides sources regarding the historical accuracy of the novel and the Appalachian folklore." - School Library Connection

"Smibert surrounds Bone with a loving, complicated extended family....(with) language, which feels real and down-to-earth, like her characters. An intriguing blend of history and magic." - Kirkus Reviews
