Above is smart and brutal and utterly, devastatingly beautiful. I was completely blown away by everything that this book has to offer: characters, plot, writing, world-building, etc. Describing the premise makes it sound a little crazy - and I suppose it is. But seriously, this is one of the most unique and best-written novels I've read in a long time. That I've read period. And for you non-sci-fi / fantasy readers, ignore those bee wings on the cover. Yes, the story is fantastical, but in Bobet's hands it reads as entirely possible. Maybe it is. All I know is that I honestly love these characters and I still hurt for them. Consider me a BIG fan of this debut novelist.

Winner of the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, and the Newberry and Carnegie Medals, this is storytelling at its best. Neil Gaiman’s tale of an orphaned boy raised by the ghostly inhabitants of an ancient graveyard, perfectly complimented by the illustrations of Dave McKean, is highly imaginative, witty, and a little bit creepy.
