They say it takes a village to raise a child. In this case, the village is a graveyard full of ghosts...
When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought he would find safety in a graveyard? In 8 chapters featuring every second year of Bod's life, we trace his upbringing by ghosts from infancy to adolescence. With the murderer still at large, will he survive to be a man?
