The winner of the 2009 Newberry award, this book tells the tale of Nobody Owens, a young boy, who, after his family is murdered, is adopted and raised by the occupants of a graveyard. I loved this fantasy filled with memorable characters - living and dead. Humor helps soften the bittersweet exploration of life and family. The tension ratchets up as Bod's opponents track him down and all the threads weave together to a wonderful resolution.The scariest parts aren't the ghosts and ghouls in the graveyard, but the dangers that lurk outside the gates. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone younger than middle-school age. 5 out of 5 stars.

Scared the pants off me in fifth grade, but a book about a kid who talks with ghosts called "Bod" (short for "Nobody") is awesumm.
