Introduction

(?An odd shaped shell caught my eye. . . . I turned it over. . . . It was a tiny, perfect skull.?

In the wake of a family tragedy, twelve-year-old Minn Hotchkiss is sent to spend the summer with her sour grandmother in the tiny seaside town of Boulder Basin, Nova Scotia. Almost as soon as she arrives, Minn discovers the skull of a human child on the beach. She is swiftly caught up in a mystery that reaches back more than a century, to the aftermath of the most tragic shipwreck in Maritime history before the Titanic.

Over the course of this extraordinary summer, Minn will discover romance with a boy who turns out to be much more than he seems, and learn that the grandmother she resented is more curious, dedicated, and surprising than she had ever guessed. She might even meet a world-famous rock star!

By summer's end, Minn will solve a ghostly mystery and, most importantly, finally be able to give up the terrible secret she has kept locked in her heart.

Discussion Questions

Suggested by Members

Do you think that The Gravesavers is a relevant novel for teens-and girls in particular-to read? Are there any adolescent female issues that are addressed in the novel?
“My life is a disaster. A total disaster.” Wails Minn. “I realize now, I didn’t know the meaning of the word.” Have you ever felt like your life was disastrous? Have you ever been shocked into the realization that your life could be much worse?
Mr. Forest tells Minn not to judge a book by its cover when he brings boxes of books to her without covers….Do you judge a book by its cover? Would the cover art for The Gravesavers make you want to read it if I hadn’t chosen it for book club?
