Graveyards can be scary and sinister places indeed, but to twelve-year-old Lincoln Crenshaw, they’re practically home. His absentminded-professor mother, Lottie, is an expert in the history of burial customs. Which means that year after year, Linc’s been dragged to more cemeteries than he can remember.
But this year is going to be different. Linc’s leaving his tiny private school and starting public school, and he’s determined to be just a normal kid with a normal social life. And everything goes according to plan until he gets his first research assignment: a mandatory class trip . . . to the local cemetery . . . to study graves.
Then everything changes. As Linc unearths the truth about a grave that local legend claims is cursed, he starts to unravel secrets about his own family. Big secrets. Life-changing secrets. In Here Lies Linc, Delia Ray has crafted a spirited, witty, and charmingly original adventure about embracing family—past and present, living and deceased.
