Synopsis:

Diane France loves bones. Why? Because they talk to her. Every skeleton she meets whispers secrets about the lifeâ€"and deathâ€"of its owner. Diane France can hear those secrets because she’s a forensic anthropologist, a bone detective. She has the science skills and know-how to examine bones for clues to a mystery: Who was this person and how did he or she die? Bones tell Diane about the life and times of famous people in history, from a Russian royal family to American outlaws and war heroes. They speak to her about murders, mass disasters, and fatal accidents. One day she’s collecting skeletal evidence at a crime scene. A phone call later she’s jetting to the site of a plane crash or other unexpected tragedy to identify victims. Young readers will be captivated by the thrilling real-life story of this small-town girl full of curiosity and mischief who became a world-famous bone detective.

From Booklist: Gr. 7-10. This unusually personal biography in the Women's Adventures in Science series introduces the life and work of a contemporary forensic anthropologist, from her rural childhood to her work identifying the victims of the 9/11 tragedies. Chapters, illustrated with sporadic color and black-and-white photographs, strike an uneven tone. Some anecdotes seem unnecessarily detailed for this age group (a conversation between France and her husband as they decide to split up), while the sometimes bubbly tone ("What a hoot!") and cheeky chapter headings ("The Nose Knows") seem at odds with the often somber subject matter. Still, the extensive detail gives readers a vivid sense of the daily work of a "bone detective," and clear explanations of the science will intrigue and inspire readers. Report writers may be frustrated by the sometimes rambling text, but the relationship to CSI subject matter ensure plenty of browsing interest. An appended list of further resources includes a publisher's Web site that leads to more information. Gillian Engberg
