Neil Gaiman's perennial favorite, The Graveyard Book, has sold more than one million copies and is the only novel to win both the Newbery Medal and the Carnegie Medal.
Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.
Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?
The Graveyard Book is the winner of the Newbery Medal, the Carnegie Medal, the Hugo Award for best novel, the Locus Award for Young Adult novel, the American Bookseller Association’s “Best Indie Young Adult Buzz Book,” a Horn Book Honor, and Audio Book of the Year.

This is the story that follows the life of the boy Nobody Owen, Bod who thanks to his curiosity avoided being killed by the ‘Jack Man’. He was adopted by the Owen’s and thanks to the generosity of the Deaths he was able to live in the graveyard and was protected by them so the ‘Jack Man’ couldn’t find him finish his job.
The story is a little dark but it also has kindness, adventure. It shows the division between right and wrong, what is really scary are not the monsters but the man who wants to kill Bod.
I found the story really enjoyable. My rating is 4.5/5

be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn’t work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you

“He looks like nobody but himself,” said Mrs. Owens, firmly. “He looks like nobody.”
