The Cemetery SleeperThe Cemetery Sleeper by Susan Griner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After Freddy’s mother died, his dad sent him to live in a little town with his Aunt Teri and her daughter Emily. One day while the kids were cooling off at the community pool, Matt the local kid story teller, told the group about a boy who slept on a grave. The boy was supposedly absorbed right into the ground. Emily being a logical individual, roundly told Matt he was full of hogwash. With Freddy as her witness, Emily would go to the Pesterfield’s family cemetery to lie down on a grave just to prove Matt wrong. While there, Freddy accidentally trips and lands on a small grave marked with a tiny tombstone etched with the name of "Tump." Later that night, he started having what would turn out to be a series of weird dreams. They were so realistic he would wake up sore the next morning.

Was Freddy just having bad dreams or was he being haunted by a long lost boy? You will just have to read this book to find out. This book is full of intrigue that will keep you turning pages until the end. The characters are believable and well rounded. The story line has a good flow and the ending will leave you satisfied. Individuals who like ghost stories and a quick read should definitely check out this wonderful book.
