I knew from the very first few pages of Cemetery Boys that I was going to love it so dearly.

Aiden Thomas lured me into their imaginative and vibrant narrative with an enchanting mix of mystery and magic, then hooked me on their winning characters. The sense of fall was immediate then, the swiftness and depth of it. I wanted to hold time like a breath in my chest, and never stop reading. When I turned the last page, I felt like something inside of me has cracked open, like a room with the windows all thrown wide open, eager to let in the gleaming sunlight, the fresh air, and the spring-morning warmth. That heady feeling of weightlessness, as though something heavy had been perched on my shoulders but had finally flown away.

Honestly speaking; it felt like I'm too old for this book and in my opinion this would be more to the taste of readers in their early teens.
Words that crossed my mind more times than I count ; lame , shallow , predictable.
Gives off good old Secret Seven vibes. Except instead of seven detectives there's (sort of ) three detectives ; a trans protagonist, a vegan girl whose moral obligations set her on a path of cruel free witchcraft and the spirit of one stubborn dead boy. The plot wasn't that much engaging or suspenseful . Was seriously considering giving up the whole thing within the first two chapters but then a dead boy's spirit came to life and I decided to stay awhile.
The introduction of the character Jules brings much secret chuckles , color and vibe to the story and also ;to me ; the main character Yadriel was very endearing in a dotting way . Even though all the characters have somewhat strong personalities I caught myself secretly applauding Mira's stupendous badassery . Her virtual middle finger at the authorities . Swearing at Lady Death within a church. 8p
If there's going to be a second part sure I'll give it a read .( but only because I read the first part , ha ! )
All in all ; predictable , but cute story and I half heartedly enjoyed it. And here's a spoiler ; feel safe to read the book . ( which is book code for....)

I adored this book- it was full of every kind of emotion. I truly felt the heartbreaks, joy, love and hate of every character, and guarantee that you will become attached to characters should you read this book. It has great cultural representation, which was educating, intriguing and exciting. I would recommend this book to everyone, but particularly those between the ager of 14-16 from marginalised backgrounds, because this book truly grasps what it feels like to feel different. It is also a gripping ghost story, with lots of twists and turns (oh my God the ending) so yes, read it!
