The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, 259 pages
I was recommended this book by my cousin and a librarian friend I have from Kansas City. They both went on and on about how beautiful the writing is in the novel and once I read it, I completely understood what they meant. Not only is Gaiman's writing beautiful, it's haunting at the same time. I've already recommended this to two of our regular patron's and I'm anxious waiting for them to return it and tell me what they think!
