The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman Neil does not disappoint. A short, simple story, but my oh my, what fun!

The story of Bod (short for Nobody) who is raised by the ghosts of an old cemetery. More a collection of stories than one long narrative, but each takes place at a different age, with a unique lesson or theme. I loved the inclusion of the headstone text as each character was introduced.

A nice mix of coming-of-age, with a little haunting and interesting characters. I found myself staying up much too late to finish this one!
