The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman One of my all time favorite reads! A great message presented by Neil Gaiman about Nobody Owens who is raised by the Graveyard. The backdrop of the book could make someone squeamish (not as squeamish as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), but if you can stick with the book past that situation you will be utterly charmed by what happens with Nobody, the ghosts in the graveyard, and the caretaker Silas.
