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.
