From the TALK series, Ghost Stories
Discussion led by Miranda Ericsson.

"There was a hand in the darkness, and it held a knife," so begins Neil Gaiman's Newberry Medal winning work of fiction. A small child wanders off into a graveyard pursued by a mysterious man named Jack who murdered the child's family. The boy is dubbed "Nobody Owens" by his adoptive ghostly parents who nickname him Bod. Bod's companions include an undead guardian named Silas and a graveyard full of ghosts who grant Bod the "freedom of the graveyard." As Bod grows, he learns to read from gravestones, is someone's imaginary friend, develops a crush on a witch, and experiences more adventures.
