The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Delightfully Charming, Gaiman-ly Creepy…

Me to my 13-year-old daughter: “I just finished a book you HAVE to read!”

Daughter: “What’s it called?”

Me: “The Graveyard Book.”

Daughter: [Raises one eyebrow, initiates eye roll]

Me: “It’s about a baby boy whose parents and sister are violently murdered but he escapes and is raised by ghosts in a graveyard.”

Daughter: “Sounds creepy…”

Me: “Oh, it is. But it’s also charming, exciting, and very, very sweet.”

Daughter: [Concludes eye roll] “Huh.”

I loved it. She will too.
