She calls herself Calexa Rose Dunhill--names taken from the grim surroundings where she awoke, bruised and bloody, with no memory of who she is, how she got there, or who left her for dead. She has made the cemetery her home, living in a crypt and avoiding human contact. But Calexa can't hide from the dead--and because she can see spirits, they can't hide from her. Then one night, Calexa spies a group of teenagers vandalizing a grave--and watches in horror as they commit murder. As the victim's spirit rises from her body, it flows into Calexa, overwhelming her mind with visions and memories not her own. Now Calexa must make a decision: continue to hide to protect herself--or come forward to bring justice to the sad spirit who has reached out to her for help.

I didn't realize this book and its sequel were graphic novels when I put a hold on them. I don't usually read graphic novels. However, there they were, so I read them and was pleasantly surprised - they're not the Archie comics of my childhood! I felt they were like a combination of a movie and a novel, with an interesting opening premise. Not as "chewy" as I like when reading for pleasure, but I would be willing to read additional graphic novels in the series to find out what happens to the main character of Cemetery Girl.


I really enjoyed reading this book. It kind of reminds me of "The Graveyard Book" by Neil Gaiman.
