Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Bod, short for Nobody, Owens has lived in the graveyard for as long as he can remember. Due to a frantic plea from his recently dead (murdered) mother, Bod was given a home in the graveyard, as well as the protection of its ghosts, werewolves, and other residents until he is old enough to protect himself. Growing up in a cemetery leads to many adventures from making friends with visitors to getting kidnapped by ghouls. Most dangerous of all, he attends school briefly with other living, breathing children. Along with this is the ever-present danger lurking outside. Bod wonders how he will manage to survive amongst the living with only the lessons he has learned from the dead.
