A trans boy determined to prove his gender to his traditional Latinx family summons a ghost who refuses to leave in Aiden Thomas's New York Times-bestselling paranormal YA debut Cemetery Boys, described by Entertainment Weekly as "groundbreaking." Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can't get rid of him. When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his true gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free. However, the ghost he summons is actually Julian Diaz, the school's resident bad boy, and Julian is not about to go quietly into death. He's determined to find out what happened and tie off some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want. But the longer Yadriel spends with Julian, the less he wants to let him leave. Praise for Cemetery Boys: Longlisted for the National Book Award "The novel perfectly balances the vibrant, energetic Latinx culture while delving into heavy topics like LGBTQ+ acceptance, deportation, colonization, and racism within authoritative establishments." -TeenVogue.com "This stunning debut novel from Thomas is detailed, heart-rending, and immensely romantic. I was bawling by the end of it, but not from sadness: I just felt so incredibly happy that this queer Latinx adventure will get to be read by other kids. Cemetery Boys is necessary: for trans kids, for queer kids, for those in the Latinx community who need to see themselves on the page. Don't miss this book." -Mark Oshiro, author of Anger is a Gift

To heal and support one another in this life and the next
Imagine: You are hanging out with a guy whom you want to help checking out his friends are okay, because there had been an attack against his group. Sounds easy, unless said guy is dead, only you can see his spirit, and his friends are slightly bewildered why you constantly talk and look the other way at, to them, nothingness and who you are, by all means.
Absolutely not my usual genre, YA and fantasy, but I loved it. Maybe because it w...
Unglaublich gutes, diverses Debüt!
Dieses Buch verbindet für mich alle Elemente, die ein Highlight haben muss: diverse, liebenswürdig chaotische aber unglaublich sympathische Charaktere, Diversität in vielen Formen und ein unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, dass mich den Atem stocken lassen hat.
Der Schreibstil des Autors ist wirklich einnehmend und konnte mich von der ersten Seite an mitreißen. Nicht nur wird hier unglaublich atmosphärisch geschrieben, sondern man kann sich auch sofort in ...

What I liked:
• The characters!!! Yadriel is the most relatable character I ever got to read about and I just want to give him a hug. And Julian is such a sweetheart! He is supposed to be a bad boy, but in reality, he is just a total ray of sunshine and I love him with all my heart. Maritza is so badass, and Julian’s friends and his brother are really cute in their own ways. I just can’t believe how much I adore those cha...
