The Graveyard Book is the story of a boy named Bod, short for Nobody, who lives in a graveyard and is raised and educated by ghosts and his guardian, a strange creature who is neither a ghost or a human. He has all kinds of adventures, from keeping away from the evil man who murdered his whole family, to meeting the Indigo man who lives under a hill. He makes friends and has a loving family, just like a normal human child, but all of his friends and family are ghosts, with exception of a girl named Scarlet.

This book is so intriguing and I loved every minute of it, from Bod's doting ghost parents, to the thrilling adventures he has. While I was reading it, I didn't think for a moment, "This is definitely a young-adult book." This story can be enjoyed by all ages. So, I recommend it and I guarantee that, even if you've never cared for ghosts stories, you will love this charming book.
