Graveminder by Melissa Marr
Rebekkah Barrow grew up respecting the dead. There was not a funeral her grandmother missed. Now her grandmother is dead and Rebekkah finds out she is next in line of a long family tradition to become the gravemaster. That is to put the dead to rest with finality. In Claysville the world between the living and the dead are very close together. If a gravemaster doesn't perform an unusual ritual the dead will stay in a limbo state hungry and thirsty for live humans. Rebekkah finds out her grandmother was actually murdered by one of these undead and she must now take it upon herself to find the poor soul and bring them to Mr. D. Someone is trying to mess up her plans though. She must find out before the town gets over run with living dead. This was a really good book. It wasn't scary more like an odd drama. This book is found in the science fiction section of the library and I suggest it for readers who like a little bit of supernatural in their lives.
