Gravediggers by Cindy Hogan

4 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Seventeen-year-old Billy thinks his father’s murder will never be solved—until he stumbles across an old ammo box while digging a grave in his small-town Tennessee cemetery.

What he finds leads him to question everything he knows, and his search for answers will uncover more than he bargained for: lies, secrets, and conspiracies—and behind them all, a dangerous truth.

Ten years ago Billy’s father was killed by a hit and run driver. He has always wanted to know who did it. So, he is working to get into college so he can join the FBI to figure out what happened to his dad and to help others like him. While digging a grave he stumbles upon an old ammo box. He decides that he is going to research the box to figure out more about the contents and he hopes to help figure out who killed his father.

I really liked this story. I felt for Billy loosing a father and not having any closure. I really like the mystery of the ammo box and I think the story wrapped up well. I kind of had an idea of who did it but was not completely sure.

The one thing I really liked about the story was how realistic Billy was. Although he was 17 years old there are times that he seems more childish. He ranges in emotions from loss to revenge, hate and forgiveness. It makes this story so much more and just a simple young adult mystery.

This is a great story that I think any age would like.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
