Author: Neil Gaiman
Nobody Owens is just like any other boy. Well, except that he lives in a graveyard and is raised by spooks, ghosts and mysterious Silas, who isn’t dead or alive. Bod longs for the world outside the graveyard, but the silent killer who murdered his family is waiting for him. Eventually Bod must decide if he will confront the man Jack and free himself or hide forever in the shadows of the dead.
Review:Gaiman is definitely coming into his own, with all the spooky humor of Coraline, but the story cohesiveness Coraline lacked – a very enjoyable read.
