“Am I dead?”
“Oh, Jesus.” — “My brother is gonna kill me..”
“Looks like someone already beat him to it.”

First of all, I’d like to thank my library for being on top of it will new releases, it makes reading all the new, hyped books so much easier.

Cemetery Boys is a fantastic and hilarious story of Yadriel, a brujo who is facing challenges from his traditional brujx family about accepting his identity. So with the help of his cousin Maritza, he does the ritual himself and hopes to prove himself by finding the ghost of his murdered cousin. But Yads accidently summons the ghost of Julian Diaz, and he doesn’t rememeber how he died. What follow is a laugh-out-loud story of acceptance, determination, and maybe a bad decision or two. I loved both Yadriel and Julian, they have some wonderful conversations about being LGBT+ (Yadriel is trans and Julian is gay) and being a part of the Latinx community. There are tons of great family (and found family) moments which you know I’m always here for. And the celebration surrounding Día de los Muertos made this a perfect I-want-fall-to-be-here-now read. Can’t recommend this enough if you like light spooky with the perfect amount of humor to balance it out, you must read this book.
