I appreciate all of the books recently that represent and celebrate characters for their differences without it needing to be the main focus of the story. In Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas, Yadriel may be trans, but his real problem is the ghost he can’t get rid of and the mysterious deaths occurring around him. Yes, his father struggles with his identity, but most of the people in Yadriel’s life accept him. This is a crazy story about a community of Latinx who communicate with the dead with a lot of magical realism, cultural identity, and family bond themes mixed in. Recommended for YA readers looking for something mystical and mystery-laden with the thread of gender identity woven through. ( )

A trans boy who wants to be a brujo accidentally summons the wrong dead spirit, a young cis man who is definitely not reconciled to being dead; he and his vegan best friend—who refuses to perform bruja magic because it requires animal blood—have to figure out how to deal with a mysterious death and also with the hot ghost while navigating magical family/community that isn’t really sure how to treat their children who aren’t doing things the usual way. The villain is pretty obvious. No transphobic violence (but a few references to harassment and a couple of family members misgender the protagonist, albeit not as a matter of policy/consistently).

Short version: Read this book. Please? Read this book? For the love of God, read this book.

Long(er) version: A wonderful, beautifully written story about a trans Latinx boy who, while in the process of making himself a brujo, something his community has denied him for so long, accidentally summons the spirit of a teenage bad boy - and oh yeah, he and the spirit totally fall in love. And there is magic, mischief, mysteries and heartache, and ghosts and spirits and traditions broken and born anew, and there are dogs and skateboards and Takis and reggaeton and beach parties and kissing and literal gods and what else do y'all need?

Yadriel and Julian are my everything, and I hope you will love them as much as I do. Please read CEMETERY BOYS. ( )

This is one of those novels that might've changed my life if I had read it as a teenager. That long ago, there wasn't anything like it within my reach.

As an adult more than twice as old as the main characters, I'm wishing there was more romance transgender urban fantasies written for adults. (Are there any like this?) Seeing that representation, especially within a culture that can be (but doesn't have to be!) hostile to queer members and set someplace I have a personal connection to is a big deal. The happy ending (or, new beginning) matters.

On the negatives, I also wish the story hadn't implied that the boys took all day, from sunrise to sunset, to drive across L.A. Yet they returned in a few hours, somehow. That plot sink killed some of my enthusiasm, because I kept trying to figure out what had happened to a crucial day. It vanished! That's going to be in my mind every time I think about recommending the book.

I'm really glad to have read CEMETERY BOYS, anyway. Even if I can't fully explain why, as I'm stuck on relief that the book simply exists. ( )

This has elements of being an #ownvoices book for both the author Aiden Thomas and narrator Avi Roque (who does a fantastic job). ⁠

Cemetery Boys has a slow start but quickly grabs the attention of the reader as the story unfolds. This was a fantastic book. Lots of rich details and cultures folded into a multifaceted mystery with a touch of romance.⁠

*****

What if you summoned a ghost but couldn't get rid of him?⁠

Author Aiden Thomas saw the writing prompt in a social media post and Cemetery Boys grew from there.⁠

All Yadriel wants is to be recognized by his father and his community as a brujx and to see his mother again during the Dia de Los Muertes celebration this year. As a trans boy, Yadz has trouble getting his father, the leader of his community, to recognize that he belongs with the rest of the brujx who can see ghosts and help them cross to the other side. When a family member suddenly goes missing and his body can't be found Yadriel and his best friend Maritza take the opportunity to prove to their families that they have what it takes to be part of their community. As they start their own search for answers, things quickly go awry. They summon a ghost, but it's not the one they're looking for. They offer to help him make sure his friends are okay, but the more time they spend helping Julian get his affairs in order, the more questions they have and the more complicated they realize the problem is. ⁠
