Will 13 year old Ruby find her real parents?

My name is Ruby. I live with Barbara and Mick. They're not my real parents, but they tell me what to do, and what to say. I'm supposed to say that the bruises on my arms and the black eye came from falling down the stairs.

What the bloggers and reviewers are saying....

The story revealed is very sad in parts, and the parents of all the children are just too awful for words.

If you’re looking for a beautifully written piece of fiction, then your search is over.

The Doll Funeral is a dark tale; it tells the story of 13 year old Ruby (from the 1st person perspective) as she searches for her real parents. 

If you enjoy a slow burner of a book which is character driven and beautifully written then this is the novel for you.
