Form and genre: Novel
Length: 160 pages
Summary: A child who can live between worlds is raised by ghosts in graveyard following the murder of his family.
Age recommendation and challenging content:
Opening scene is of a murder. It isn’t graphic but students should be aware of it.
Recommend for Y8 as a read for pleasure. This is not challenging enough for a KS3 class study.
Notable reasons for recommending this book: Gaiman weaves in supernatural legend and history.
