I LOVED the Newbery honor, Three Times Lucky, and was super
thrilled to pick up this sequel, also set in Tupelo Landing. Mo LaBeau is back,
and this time she’s ghost hunting for a history project. Turnage’s signature
sense of humor is back in full narrative force (“they had about as much in
common as yes and no,”) and so is the long, and unforgettable cast of
characters. Replete with true spookiness
and paranormal activity, this book stands alone as well as in concert with
Three Times Lucky. Ages 10+
