Book cover Cemetery Boys

"Yadriel, a trans boy, summons the angry spirit of his high school's bad boy, and agrees to help him learn how he died, thereby proving himself a brujo, not a bruja, to his conservative family." - from Sonoma County Library

I've been listening to this as an audio book during my commute to PHS, and not only do I love the story of Yadriel trying to prove his brujo magic, but I love the way the narrator brings each character's personality to life, from determined Yadriel, to his spunky cousin Maritza, to bad boy (and newly dead) Julian, to Yadriel's entire family.
