doll bones holly blackHolly Black received the 2014 Mythopoeic Award for Children’s Literature for her 2013 novel Doll Bones. The Mythopoeic Fantasy Awards are chosen annually to reflect the best fantasy literature published within the last two years.

“It’s been an award I’ve admired a lot, in part because of its celebration of my mythic and in part because it’s an award that has gone to some of my favorite books and favorite writers,” said Black on her Tumblr.

In Doll Bones, best friends Zach, Poppy and Alice are plagued by a series of mysterious occurrences when Poppy swears that she is now being haunted by a china doll – who claims that it is made from the ground-up bones of a murdered girl.
