  • This is the story of a girl who lived but was not alive…

    Carrie Anne is desperately unhappy. Tangled in a web of abuse, she seeks solace in the cemetery that backs onto her garden. But something creeps between the gravestones. Carrie Anne is not alone…

    …and a boy who was dead, but could not die.


    'The cemetery is home to a boy. He has guarded these forgotten bones since meeting a gruesome end two hundred years ago. Neither dead nor alive, he has been watching for a long time. And now, he finally has the visitor he’s been waiting for…

    The perfect twisted tale for fans of Angela Carter, Grimm's Fairy Tales and Tim Burton

    'Within the pages of The Boy in the Cemetery, I found that incredible part of my imagination that I realise I'd lost somewhere in the process of growing up. I was enthralled, entranced, and completely enchanted. I would happily, happily, happily read anything by Sebastian all day long.' - 5 cupcakes from Becca's Books to The Boy in the Cemetery
