Product description


Longlisted for the 2020 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature
A YALSA 2021 Best Fiction for Young Adults
Top Ten pick

"This stunning debut novel from Thomas is detailed, heart-rending, and immensely romantic. I was bawling by the end of it, but not from sadness: I just felt so incredibly happy that this queer Latinx adventure will get to be read by other kids. Cemetery Boys is necessary: for trans kids, for queer kids, for those in the Latinx community who need to see themselves on the page. Don’t miss this book." ―Mark Oshiro, author of Anger is a Gift

"Aiden Thomas' debut novel can't help but charm and captivate readers of all ages, though teen readers will invariably identify with and appreciate the high jinks and emotional vulnerability that make each character and scenario deliciously enchanting." ― Booklist, starred review

" 'Scooby-Doo' meets 'Love, Simon' in this inclusive supernatural romance steeped in East Los Angeles Latinx culture.... Thomas injects the queer paranormal romance genre with a fresh shot of lavishly detailed Latinx culture, blending in Mayan, Mexican, Central American and South American traditions while commenting on cultural appropriation, deportation and class. Windows into the intersecting Latinx and L.G.B.T.Q. experience are plentiful here, and the opportunities for discovery and discussion are endless." -- New York Times Book Review

"This book is magical, tender, loving, and so so so important. I love it with all my heart." ―Mason Deaver, author of I Wish You All The Best

"The novel perfectly balances the vibrant, energetic Latinx culture while delving into heavy topics like LGBTQ+ acceptance, deportation, colonization, and racism within authoritative establishments." ―TeenVogue.com

"Cemetery Boys is a celebration of culture and identity that will captivate readers with its richly detailed world, earnest romance, and thrilling supernatural mystery. This delightful debut is a must-read for all paranormal romance fans." ―Isabel Sterling, author of These Witches Don't Burn

Thomas marries concept and execution in a romantic mystery as poignant as it is spellbinding, weaved in a mosaic of culture, acceptance, and identity, where intricately crafted characters are the pieces and love―platonic, romantic, familial, and communal―is the glue." ― Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Cemetery Boys is nothing short of an astonishing work of art. Aiden Thomas masterfully weaves a tale of family, friendships, and love in a heartwarming adventure full of affirmation and being your best self." ― C.B. Lee, author of Not Your Sidekick

"A gay, transgender brujo with burgeoning powers seeks answers about his cousin’s death... Both the romance and mystery burn slow and hot until the climax... Their romance provides joyful, ground-breaking representation for gay, transgender boys. Heart-pounding." ―Kirkus

"A story much bigger than the paper that binds it, Cemetery Boys is the tender intricacy we have all been waiting for." ―Kayla Ancrum, author of The Wicker King

"Speaking from experience, this is the kind of book that you read and then immediately go force all your friends to read so they can share the pleasure." ―Buzzfeed

"A wildly memorable novel." ―Paste

"Magical, swoonworthy, and utterly charming." ―Bitch Media

"This one is just what your heart needs right now." ―TOR.com

"Thomas sensitively navigates Yadriel’s struggles as a trans teen, from the insecurity of not wearing his binder at night around Julian, to deadnaming by family members, to the emotional burden of constantly forgiving people who misgender him. In spite of some heavy themes, this is a pleasing ghost-story-turned-romcom ... Readers wary of tragic endings can relax―there’s a well-deserved happy ending in store for this ghost boy and brujo." ―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Packed with eerie adventure, tingly romance, and family drama, the novel lays bare the tension between upholding tradition and reaching full self-acceptance. Cheeky, relatable characters bring humor and lightness into Thomas’s debut, which also takes on themes of death, loss, abandonment, and rejection." ― Horn Book

4.0 out of 5 stars ~ A super fun Latinx Brujx, breaking gender stereotypes YA Novel!
By thefurredreader on 2 June 2021
QOTD: “Growth isn’t a deviation from what we’ve done before, but a natural progression to honour all those who make this community strong”.

~ This story is about a young teenage trans boy named Yadriel belonging to a Latinx family. Yadriel’s belongs to a family of Brujx (AKA-witches), that have the power to bridge the living world and the dead. Since Yadriel is a trans, He is not accepted as a brujx by his family. In an attempt to prove himself, Along with the help of his friend Maritza, Yadriel summons a ghost- Julian and is now unable to rid of him. Julian is concerned about the safety of his friends and is unwilling to leave unfinished business. Both boys have things they need to accomplish, they decide it’d be better to work it together. Their journey leads to a series of shocking revelations!

~ I quite enjoyed reading “Cemetery Boys”, the hype is real! I liked the Latinx cultural element. Super cute and adorable characters ❤️ There’s extensive use of Spanish, but the writing is so impeccable making it easier to understand. I love how this story depicts the difficulties of family and gender acceptance.

~ I’d rate it a 4/5. ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

No, It wasn’t the end. It was a better beginning.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 December 2020
Yadriel is a gay teenager in a traditional Latinx family and is trans. His family have difficulty accepting his gender and will not allow him to perform the quinces ritual to make him a true Brujo. With the help of his cousin, Maritza, they complete the ritual and Lady Death accepts him. To prove himself to his family he plans to find the ghost of his murdered uncle Miguel and set him free.

Only trouble with the plan is he summons Julian’s ghost instead who is the hot, gay bad boy from school. After some negotiation Julian agrees to help Yadriel and Maritza find Miguel in exchange for finding out what happened to him and to make sure his friends are ok.

When they investigate both murders and locate Julian’s friends, an unlikely bond of friendship grows between the boys. Julian is a free spirit with a thirst for fun while Yadriel is reserved and blends into the background but when they share their fears, their loneliness and Yadriel’s hurt over his family’s lack of acceptance of his true identity, they grow closer. As Día de Muertos approaches Yadriel is reluctant to release Julian because he doesn’t want to say goodbye forever to the one boy that accepts him as he is. Will Yadriel fulfil Julians last request? Can they solve what happened to him and Miguel in time or is there an evil force working against them to thwart their efforts?

I love this book and it’s a full 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 from me. It made me laugh and cry. It was a heartfelt, emotional and crazy journey for both Yadriel and Julian and I enjoyed every minute of it. I adored both characters for their similarities and their clashing differences but also for the way they dealt with their sexuality and identities in the face of opposition with strength and dignity. At times I felt they were no longer characters and I was reading about real people. I was intrigued by the cultural and religious themes in the story and found them fascinating. It was a beautifully written story about belief in oneself and relying on others while also showing the importance of family both related and chosen.
