5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Trip Down Memory LaneApril 15, 2013
This review is from: Paranormal Properties (Paperback)
Too many books for middle schoolers are formulaic, with plots that are variations of a 
few common themes. Paranormal Properties stands above the crowd with likable characters
 with depth and an involved spiderwebish plot with breadth and intrigue. Tracy Lane sets the
table perfectly in the first few chapters as the reader holds on for an exciting ride looking for
 the answer to a 60 year old crime with more twists and paths than a Halloween labyrinth.

Young readers should enjoy this tale of ghosts, pathos, an uncommon pair of friends, and a fast
 paced mystery that never lags or disappoints. Even this not so young reader is impressed by the
 author's talent and looks forward to seeing these characters again in a future sequel.

Note - One of my favorite images from the book - " Toots spat out a rusty belch from his trumpet
 before a long, low note sang clear." That's cool. Really cool.
