Overview

Fans of Neil Gaiman s The Graveyard Book will embrace this darkly funny novel
Crow isn't like the other kids. He stinks. He s got maggots. His body parts fall off at inopportune moments. (His mom always sews them back on, though.) And he hasn t been able to sleep in years. Not since waking up from death.
But worse than the maggots is how lonely Crow feels. When Melody Plympton moves in next door, Crow can t resist the chance to finally make a friend. With Melody around he may even have a shot at getting his life back from the mysterious wish-granting creature living in the park. But first there are tests to pass. And it will mean risking the only friend he s had in years.
Debut author Laurel Gale s story about friendship fulfilled may be the most moving and most macabre yet.
Praise for Dead Boy
A stinky, creepy tale for anyone who s ever felt like an outsider. Kirkus Reviews
Gale takes readers on a dark and surprisingly funny journey. . . . A great recommendation to middle grade fans of dark humor. School Library Journal
