The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman

This is Gaimans' first book for Teens; I'd put it at Middle School, and up. It contains all the things kids love: wonder, terror and magic. When tragedy strikes local household, the only survivor; Bod who is under 2 years old, scoots out the door, across the street, and into the Graveyard. For the next 14 years, he is the only living person in the Graveyard, which has become his home. Oh, he has plenty of company and he is well taken care of, and his education is very unusual, as you can only imagine. Great, fun read, for anyone older than 10.
