"Books are mirrors, you only see in them what you already have inside of you.” A young boy in post- civil war Spain is taken to a secret place by his father called the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. That event propels young Daniel into a journey down the rabbit hole through gothic Barcelona to solve the mysteries. Fantasy and reality blur. A complex literary novel, it is close match for fans of Eco’s Name of the Rose. This coming of age book may also appeal to fans of teen favorite Lev Grossman’s Codex and Fillory books.
