The Graveyard Book (YA)
Book #109 Read in 2014
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (YA)
Nobody (or Bod) escapes from his family's murderer as a toddler by wandering into a graveyard. The graveyard residents decide that Bod can live in the graveyard and they will protect him. Also protecting him is his graveyard guardian Silas. He makes sure that the boy has food and clothes as he grows. As Bod grows though he wants to experience life outside of the graveyard....but is it safe? I enjoyed this book. It would make a good Halloween read with werewolves, vampires, ghosts and mummies in it. I enjoyed it.
