I enjoyed reading Cemetery Girl. The characters were well written, and Janie and her friends, while very different from each other, were likable and believable. The novel is categorized as Fantasy and science fiction, but it is not at all heavy on the fantasy. Janie, who shows a talent for drawing, spends some time in a cemetery to draw. She finds that she gets messages from beyond the grave when she is there. While trying to make sense of these messages, she also deals with making sense of who she is as a teen and making friends. The illustrations were in black and white, and done by the author's daughters and fit in well with the storyline. There are some editing/proofreading marks still in the print, most of what I noticed were towards the last 1/4 of the book, which was the most distracting part of reading it.

****I received this book from the author, Joseph Cognard, through a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for a fair review. ***
