Cemetery Boys

Yadriel is a transgender youth trying to prove his worth in his tight-knit, Latinx community—a place where he feels misunderstood. He performs a magical ritual that opens up a door to the world of the dead and embarks on a journey to solve the murder of a teenage boy. Real-world societal issues are brought to light in a riveting story that touches on timely themes around personal identity, cultural and spiritual beliefs, LGBTQ, immigration, and socioeconomic equality. Appropriate in a secondary classroom, this novel lends itself well as a class novel, in literature circles or as an independent reading choice, inspiring discussions about its important themes and encouraging students to think critically and creatively.
