Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can't get rid of him.

When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his true gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free.

However, the ghost he summons is actually Julian Diaz, the school's resident bad boy, and Julian is not about to go quietly into death. He's determined to find out what happened and tie off some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want. But the longer Yadriel spends with Julian, the less he wants to let him leave.

Reviews for Cemetery Boys

This stunning debut novel from Thomas is detailed, heart-rending, and immensely romantic. I was bawling by the end of it, but not from sadness: I just felt so incredibly happy that this queer Latinx adventure will get to be read by other kids. Cemetery Boys is necessary: for trans kids, for queer kids, for those in the Latinx community who need to see themselves on the page. Don't miss this book. --Mark Oshiro, author of Anger is a Gift A story much bigger than the paper that binds it, Cemetery Boys is the tender intricacy we have all been waiting for. --Kayla Ancrum, author of The Wicker King This book is magical, tender, loving, and so so so important. I love it with all my heart. --Mason Deaver, author of I Wish You All The Best Cemetery Boys is a celebration of culture and identity that will captivate readers with its richly detailed world, earnest romance, and thrilling supernatural mystery. This delightful debut is a must-read for all paranormal romance fans. --Isabel Sterling, author of These Witches Don't Burn Cemetery Boys is nothing short of an astonishing work of art. Aiden Thomas masterfully weaves a tale of family, friendships, and love in a heartwarming adventure full of affirmation and being your best self. -- C.B. Lee, author of Not Your Sidekick The novel perfectly balances the vibrant, energetic Latinx culture while delving into heavy topics like LGBTQ+ acceptance, deportation, colonization, and racism within authoritative establishments. --TeenVogue.com Speaking from experience, this is the kind of book that you read and then immediately go force all your friends to read so they can share the pleasure. --Buzzfeed A wildly memorable novel. --Paste Magical, swoonworthy, and utterly charming. --Bitch Media This one is just what your heart needs right now. --TOR.com
