Description

A New York Times Bestseller

Nobody Owens, known to his friends a Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy, but if Bod leaves, then he will come under attack from the man Jack -- who has already killed Bod's family.
