The Stone Girl's Story Reviews

  • Suze Lavender

    Mayka's creator made his stone creatures come to life through intricate markings that are telling their story. Mayka is a girl made of stone with her history etched on her body. Because stone lasts longer than a human life, Mayka and the stone animals she lives with now no longer have anyone to recarve their markings. When those marks are fading the stone creatures lose functions, until they stop moving completely. To prevent that from happening to her friends and herself, Mayka leaves home for ...more

    Full disclosure for people who've never read any of my other reviews: I've basically got two settings, Coldly Intellectual and Ball of Mush. The book caught me in Ball of Mush mode, and I started crying within sentences. Following is a rough transcript of what followed, serving the dual function of catharsis and book review.

    Coldly Intellectual Plum (hereafter CIP, pronounced 'Kip', I suppose, if you're thinking aloud) said (to myself, not aloud, and certainly not calling me Mushy Plum, or BoMP):

    I loved this story of a girl who, though she is made of stone, is just as alive as anyone else, with the capacity to grow, and change, and act on the side of justice.

    Yes, the themes of stories and storytelling, family and friendship, kindness and compassion, are all central here, and definitely make The Stone Girl’s Story a Recommended Read. Certainly they, and the wonderful characterization, are what endeared the book to this reviewer.

    Yet there are also deeper currents to be found in Ms. Durst’s well-crafted world, as well, where Carvers can breathe life into stone by inscribing words onto it’s sculpted surface.

    While I don't read much MG, I'm always up for a good story. I also love the author's work so adding this to my reading pile was a no brainer. I was also not disappointed.

    The story is of stone which comes to life if a skilled stonemason carves and then gives story to the various forms of rock. Mayka has been made by one of the most skilled stonemasons and she and her family of creatures all have the choice to expand upon their own stories. It's very much like how children are given a bit of their

    Mayka and her stone family were brought to life by the markings etched into their bodies--symbols that represent who they are and the stories of their live. Mayka's father was a talented stonemason. He created fish that could swim, rabbits, birds, and even a turtle before he used everything he had learned to create Mayka a girl who lives and thinks even if she does not need to breath or eat the way humans do.

    But stone erodes over time and Mayka's father is no longer alive to tend to his stone cr

    This is a charming middle grade novel, that centers around a stone girl who is desperate to save herself and her friends who are fading from this world.  She sets off an adventure to the valley where her farther came from in hopes she will find a stonemason who can re carve their marks so that they won't fade away.  What she discovers in the city of Skye is not at all what she expects.  The story moves along at a rapid pace and the whole concept of living breathing stone creations and people is ...more
