A retelling of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," The Hollow Bones follows Evangeline "Lina" Van Brunt, daughter of Katrina Van Tassel and Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt. Despite it having been almost twenty years since schoolmaster Ichabod Crane's mysterious disappearance, the villagers' stories still warn of dangerous spirits and hauntings in the Hollow. When Lina suddenly develops magical powers, she begins a journey to uncover the truth of what has happened to this tiny village, even all the way back to the American Revolution. Lina's search for answers about the Hollow and herself allows for discussions of generational trauma and inter-family conflict, the search for identity and belonging, and the consequences of abuse of power.
