by Neil Gaiman
The Graveyard Book is about a boy named Nobody Owens (often shortened to Bod) who was adopted by the ghosts in a graveyard after his family was killed. He has to learn the secret abilities of the dead, but once he leaves the graveyard, he has to confront the man who killed his family.
The Graveyard Book was very thrilling and ominous, but still had humor and was hard to put down once I started. I personally liked its compelling and well-done artwork, which really matched the atmosphere of the book.
It is definitely one of the more creepy books, but anyone who can accept that will be satisfied. I highly recommend it.
