Staff Reviews

This book made me laugh, cry, and stay up until 2am to reach the end.  And when I finally did reach the last page, my first instinct was to read it all over again (so I did).  Cemetery Boys centers on teenage trans brujo Yadriel, who lives in a community where magic use is incredibly gendered.  It's a story of a boy trying to prove himself to his family, complete with magic, adventure, and romance.  This book warmed my heart to the core, while providing a nuanced examination of tradition, identity, and family - both born and found.

“I couldn’t put this book down — I raced through it. Everything about it I loved, from the rich world-building of the brujx community Yadriel is part of, to the diverse cast of characters that included multiple trans and queer Latinx characters. It being written by an Own Voices author only made it that much better!”
