About a boy named nobody
By Harold Love
I read a book called The Grave Yard by Neil Gaiman. This book is about a boy named Nobody Owens who was raised in a grave by dead people because of a man named Jack Frost. Jack Frost killed Nobody's family because Jack and his clan saw Nobody's family's future. They saw that the family would have more magical powers than them. Jack was looking for Nobody Owens for a long time. The boy was getting lessons about magic, and he was given the freedom of the graveyard. He wasn’t supposed to leave the graveyard, but he did quite often. Each time he got in trouble except for the time he and the dead people danced with the living, but the living didn’t remember dancing with the dead, and the dead didn’t talk about it. Nobody Owens made lots of friends in the graveyard, and he made one friend in the outside world. By the end of the book, they weren’t friends because she was scared of how he changed. The first time they met was when he was five, and he didn’t know magic. Nobody lived in the graveyard for 15 years and left because he was ready to be on his own. His guardian wasn’t a dead person, just a person with lots of power who couldn't die.
The Graveyard is not a normal book; it’s a magic one you read and can’t put down. Also, you would look at things differently than you do now. I would recommend it to people who like good stories and who look at the world in a different way.
My favorite part was when Nobody’s dream walks into the bully’s dream and makes him change his ways. My least favorite part was when Nobody had to leave the graveyard at a young age because the graveyard said they would raise and keep him safe till he was grown up. He left when he was only 15 or 16 years old. The other part I disliked was when Nobody’s human friend had to lose her memories and freaked out.
