The Graveyard Book / Neil Gaiman
Is it possible for a baby to be brought up by the ghosts of a nearby cemetery?
Nobody, called Bod by his friends, is a normal teenager if you don’t take into account that he has been bought up in a cemetery by its solitary guardian and the resident ghosts.
There are some dangers but it is in the land of the living where Bod needs to watch out as that is where Jack lives, the assasin who killed Bod’s family and now is looking for him.
A heartening story about love and friendship found in the most unexpected places, such as among ghosts from a cemetery.
