Skeletons by Natalie Rodriguez is a thrilling tale rooted in mental illness and comes across as a fine sequel of its predecessor, Elephant. While Elephant talked about 'the elephant in the room,' Skeletons attempts to elaborate on the secrets thrown under the carpet. It is based on the premise that there are secrets in the closet, screaming and grappling to come out!

Skeletons follow Matt who wakes up in the hospital after a prolonged coma. Two of his best buddies, Jamie and Derek, along with his

Trapped in his medical hospital with no appearance from his friends and family, Lisa helps him in escaping from it.

🍷After reading Elephant, I was so much in love with the way the concept was brought out so well! This book is definitely one of those books which you can't really leave once you start, it's actually one of those books I was actually waiting to come out and trust me it totally lived upto or maybe more than I ever expected.

The storyline is a direct continuation of the first volume but anyone can read it as a standalone because it's an independent story where we see some amazing characters along

The central topic of the book is mental health. The story is for those who feel their voice is unheard and for children, teenagers, and adults who never had the chance to heal from their pain. The author has maintained the balance between fictional and introspective elements of the story.

We all know about the importance of good mental health. A mental illness is a physical illness of the brain that causes disturbances in thinking, behavior, energy or emotion that make it difficult to cope with t
