Good Reads: The Graveyard Book


Title: The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman

When his family is murdered by the mysterious man named Jack, Nobody 'Bod' Owens is raised by the spirits who take their eternal rest at a nearby graveyard. Growing up within the gates of the graveyard, Bod is safe from the dangerous Jack as he learns from all the different ghosts who live their. Once he is outside the gates, however, he is mortal peril - yet how can he grow up without venturing out into the world? Ultimately, Bod finds himself face-to-face with Jack and the consequences of his actions will change him forever.

Gaiman, the author of Coraline and The Sandman comic books, tells a great story about growing up and the choices and changes that go along with it. Gaiman's descriptions and imagery are spectacular and it is easy to get lost in Bod's world.

The Graveyard Book is located in YA Fiction: YA Gaiman
