Who wouldn't be intrigued reading such title? I was in Middle Grade novel fever a few months back (still is, actually) and reading the title alone is enough to make me crave this book. Oh, and not to mention the gorgeous cover. Ideally, this is how a middle grade book should look like.
Thomas and his father Silas were "professional" grave diggers. They operated at night, raiding fresh graves for anything that would be worth of money. One night, out of the blue, Thomas found a body, inside a grave he dug, that looked identically like him.
