The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, Chris Riddell (Illustrator)

I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. 

Nobody Owens's family was killed by a Jack. He, just a toddler, escaped and is growing up in the graveyard. His adoptive parents, as well as all of the residents of the Graveyard, worked hard to raise him, and teach him all the important stuff, like fading, raising fear and terror in the room, the real history. :)

When his killer is finally beaten, he can leave. But leaving means he can never come back again.

It's about growing up, about letting go and moving on. It's bittersweet, but so very beautiful tale.
