How Nobody came to the graveyard -- New friend -- Hounds of God -- Witch's headstone -- Danse Macabre -- Convocation -- Nobody Owens' school days -- Every man Jack -- Leavings and partings.
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack-who has already killed Bod's family.
