Gaiman, Neil -- The Graveyard Book
A boy named Nobody is adopted by ghosts. Charming and light. Gaiman is
pastiching many familiar stories here -- sometimes from chapter to
chapter, which makes the book feel more uneven than it could have been
-- but the allusions don't overpower the story. Put this with Nation
and you have an excellent year for young fantasy readers.
