The Graveyard Book -  'Dave McKean', Neil Gaiman

Me to my 13-year-old daughter: "I just finished a book you HAVE to read!"


Daughter: "What's it called?"


Me: "The Graveyard Book."


Daughter: [Raises one eyebrow, initiates eye roll]


Me: "It's about a baby boy whose parents and sister are violently murdered but he escapes and is raised by ghosts in a graveyard."


Daughter: "Sounds creepy..."


Me: "Oh, it is. But it's also charming, exciting, and very, very sweet."


Daughter: [Concludes eye roll] "Huh."


I loved it. She will too.
