Last night I finished another great book – Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
Blurb: Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can’t get rid of him.
In an attempt to prove himself a true brujo and gain his family’s acceptance, Yadriel decides to summon his cousin’s ghost and help him cross to the afterlife.
But things get complicated when he accidentally summons the ghost of his high school’s resident bad boy, Julian Diaz – and Julian won’t go into death quietly.
The two boys must work together if Yadriel is to move forward with his plan.
But the more time Yadriel and Julian spend together, the harder it is to let each other go.
My Rating: 5/5
My Thoughts: Yadriel is a brujo, he knows he is, but his family cannot accept that. Brujo’s are men, only natural born men, and Yadriel is trans.
In an attempt to prove himself Yadriel accidentally summons the ghost of Julian Diaz – and now Yadriel has to find out why before ultimately releasing Julian’s spirit, just as a brujo does.
As they spend more time together Yadriel realises that he doesn’t want to let Julian go, but at the same time he has no right to keep him around.
This is a great story, part mystery, part romance – a wonderful back story of a community of people who are intimately connected to the world of spirits
Fully recommend this 🙂
