April Books 15) The Ocean At The End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman

One of Gaiman's excellent shorter pieces, with a boy who doesn't quite understand what's going on in the world around him, partly because it's incomprehensible adult stuff and partly because it's scary monsters from another dimension threatening to destroy the world. I felt he was drawing from a deeper well here than in, say, Coraline or The Graveyard Book, and it was more successful as a result. I find Gaiman more interesting when he dares to try something a little newer.
