The Raven Boys is a paranormal mystery with a twist.  It was a bit confusing at the very beginning when the characters are being introduced but that only added to the surprises that happen ater in the book.  The story focuses around Blue, who is the daughter of a psychic. The Raven Boys opens with Blue and Neeve, a friend of Blue’s Mom’s, sitting in a church graveyard waiting for something. The reader finds out that they are waiting for the spirits to appear of the people who will be dead within the next year.
