With the popularity of Twilight and Harry Potter series of books, I find myself sharing books with my teen and tween! The Graveyard Book is a unique book written for the tweens that I have on my reading list!

The Graveyard Book is the story of a boy who is raised in a graveyard by those who live there. The long-dead, ghouls, witches allow him to live among them because he was orphaned, and they adopt him, calling him Nobody or Bod.
It's kind of like Tarzan or The Jungle Book, because the boy is raised by "parents" that are not like him. I don't want to give any spoilers but despite graveyard setting, it's a story of how Bod grows up.
Have you heard about The Graveyard Book? Have you or your kids read it? Talk to me.
