I knew it centered around grave robbing, but this book was nothing like I expected. Joey Crouch’s, the narrator and protagonist, voice was honest and endearing despite the disturbing story he was telling. Gripping writing and vivid prose (though a few passages became a bit florid), beautifully designed characters (even the unlikable ones), and an engaging story all came together to create one of the best YA books I’ve read this year. But be forewarned, you’ll need a strong stomach to make it through.
Personal rating: 4/5 Stars
