I also hated the fact these characters were so judgemental. Billy constantly made sexist comments about how beautiful girls were shallow, giggly, "high-maintenance", among other things. Amanda called Sarah Ann a skank for making out with one boy. Henry tells Billy to "man up" and figure out his dad's death - as if finding out the murder of his father affects his masculinity? Billy is surprised when Amanda is said to have "morals" - 'cause he pretty girls are normally stupid. And plenty more...
And while I loved that this was set somewhere a little different - in small town Tennessee - I didn't like the locals approach to their culture. Billy and Henry get weirdly angry that Amanda (whose from Florida) doesn't say "y'all". They actually tell her not to say "you all" because it was too "weird". Why does it even matter? Also, the character's Christian rambles were so contradictory it drove me insane. I don't understand how Billy wasn't allowed to ask his own mother about his father's death - it being too "gossipy" - and how drinking is said to be oh-so evil yet they let their kids go to the shooting range and hunt animals? Surely murdering innocent woodland creatures is more harmful than idle gossip? Hmmm?
Sorry for this short, choppy and rather terrible review but this book put me in a bad mood and I'm tired. This will have to do for now. I am disappointing that this book did nothing for me so I doubt I'll be picking up any more of the author's work. Wouldn't recommend.

I love this book. I would have loved using this book while I was teaching school. I love the complexity of Gravediggers plot. Ms. Hogan had multiple mysteries and subplots intertwined throughout the book. I know it's a good book when I want to skip to the end to 'just put me out of my misery' and find out the ending. I'm happy to report that I showed great restraint and did not skip. Rather, I read the book in two sittings. I love the complex relationships of the main and secondary characters. The cast is full and each character feels real. Small town humor and Southern manners are plentiful as well. This is an excellent read for all ages. I especially like that it would appeal to the middle school crowd.
I loved it - 5 stars
Content: clean - sweet kisses and one swear word.
Gravediggers is a exciting mystery that is full of emotional range. It is a mystery, drama, YA, and romance all in one story. I liked the characters. I wanted to help Billy find his answers. Wanted to yell at him at times. and root for him at other times.
Billy is seventeen year old. His father was killed by a hit and run driver when he was only eight years old. Billy wants to be a FBI Agent so he can solve his father's murder. He finds a old ammo box full of mystery. He decides to investigate it with the help of his best friend.
Billy finds himself not trusting anything he has been told or anyone. He gets so full of anger, and wants to get even. He crosses lines little bit at a time.
I wanted more to the book. I was not ready to put the book down. It brought tears to me during reading.
I like reading stories written by Cindy M. Hogan. I want to read more stories from her in the future. I have only read six of her books and have enjoyed all of them.
I was given this ebook to read by author so I could give Gravediggers a honest review.
