OooI forgot to add that

It's the Memoir of a guy named Dylan from the age of 13 when he & his 2 siblings go to a boarding school that is really part of a secret organization. The school burns down & then he and the fellow students become volunteers in this secret organization & they do work to help it.

Also Lots of people die & the motto of the organization is you are made of the remains of the dead.

Remains of the Dead... I think that'd be a pretty cool title.

I always think it's more important to get the novel written first, and then figure out a title... if you're really stumped, why not just name is "The Memoir of Dylan" for now? Very unoriginal, but it's a title!

I agree -- titles can come later, once the story's all said and done. I've not given my current WIP a title yet simply because I haven't even reached the halfway point, and cannot possibly know its full potential until I finish it. :)

Sounds best suited to stories about the living dead... actually, a quick Google search shows many novels about ghosts and zombies with this title.

I find, when I can't find a title, that it's easiest just to give it a one word place-holder: perhaps after the thing that inspired it or a character in it. The earliest working title for my WIP, Black Lamb, was "Kitten" - which is the MCs name. Another was simply titled "Sophie Rocks!" (Sophie was my writing buddy for NaNo '09) before it became Prince Charming. Another was "ThisStoryNeedsAName" before it changed to Summer's Gone.
