Storyboard Text

  • "[Poppy] liked nothing better than being in charge of the story..." (2).
  • "If any of his [Zach's] teammates found out that, at twelve, he was still playing with action figures, basketball would become a lot less fun," (5)
  • "Boys had been hassling [Alice] ever since she'd hit ten, gotten curves, and started looking a lot older..." (6)
  • "Light filtered in through the dirty windowpane to make the scarred wood on the kitchen table show the pale water marks from wet mugs and the greenish smudge where Zach had once drawn a spaceship in permanent marker," (31).
  • "'It's like you're both forgetting everything. You're forgetting who you are,'" (199).
  • Characterization In the beginning of the book, we learn about Zach, Poppy, and Alice. Zach has a father that gave up his dreams, Alice has a strict Hispanic Grandmother, and Poppy has some siblings with a bad reputation.
  • He thought about how he'd met them both, when they were all little kids..." (106).
  • TICKETS: $5
  • Imagery Zach sits at his kitchen table and thinks about how his father threw away his action figures, visiting the years when he was allowed to be a kid.
  • "'Maybe we can't play [the game] the way we used to, but we could still tell each other what happens next,'" (244)
  • Black, Holly. Doll Bones: La Bambola Di Ossa. Mondadori, 2015.
  • Theme Poppy has to remind Zach and Alice that even though they're getting older and finding love, they still have to remember who they are and stick together.
  • Flashback Zach remembers how he met Poppy and Alice when they were little and didn't worry about relationships and being made fun of for playing with dolls.
  • Symbolism The most obvious symbolism in this book is the Queen, the one who starts the whole quest. Since Doll Bones is a story about growing up, the Queen represents childhood. When the three finally bury the Queen, they are accepting that they have to grow up but they can still remember what it was like.
