    About the Novel:
    The Graveyard Book is the Newbery Medal-winning story of a young boy's escape from fate and discovery of his destiny. Bod Owens is anything but a nobody. Orphaned as a baby when his entire family was murdered, Bod is adopted by two ghosts in a cemetery where he now lives. Here he is nurtured and protected by a fascinating array of ghostly neighbors including his guardian, Silas, a strange creature who is not limited to remaining in the cemetery, unlike the other inhabitants. Years later, the man who murdered Bod's family returns to finish the job. In the exciting climax, we learn the secret of Bod's misfortune and his involvement in a mysterious prophecy, and then discover where his unusual life will rest.
