The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

I would give this book five stars.

The Graveyard Book, is about a boy who’s parents get killed when he is little, and must be raised in a graveyard. The boy was raised by two ghosts’, who named the boy Nobody. Nobody must stay in the graveyard to keep safe of the killer who murdered the rest of his family. Nobody is given the gift of disappearing -so no one can see him- and the gift of being able to walk through walls. Nobody in the end must find a way to get rid of his family’s killer, Jack, so he can have a normal life.

I liked this book because, it has unexpected twists. This book won the Newberry award in 2009. I would give this book five stars because The Graveyard Book has an odd point of view. My favorite part of this book is when Nobody goes onto un-concentrated to face the leers, who are protectors to Jack.
