The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book
While a family was being gruesomely murdered, the youngest child toddled off to a nearby graveyard, thus escaping death, or so it seemed. Raised by the dead, living in the graveyard, Nobody Owens, or Bod, as he was called, learned the ways of the dead. His friends were the dead and he learned how to Fade from sight and walk through walls, and open the ghoul gate and yet, he was lonely for the company of the living. As long as he is being hunted by the one who killed the rest of his family though, he can't really join the world of the living. This is a lovely and fascinating story of a child raised by and among the dead.
