Review: Paranormal Properties - Tracy Lane

Reviewer: Danny
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Fairies
I love ghosts!

I really loved the cover and I couldn’t wait to read this.

I am not usually a fan of YA books. I prefer the adult reads, but this was really enjoyable. it made me laugh and was entertaining throughout!

Jake’s parents are ghost hunters, and they have their own show called “Paranormal Properties”. When the family arrives in Dusk, Jake learns that he can see and talk to ghosts.

It is really hard not to include a spoiler, so I will just say that when Jake meets Frank things get really, really fun! I am having one of these fan-girl moments where I am not sure what to say and what to leave out, but this was a really cute book, no matter your age you will enjoy it!
Jake Weir, while on the set of his parents ghost hunting TV show, agrees to help a ghost investigate a 61 year-old murder.

Jake Weir is not like the other kids in Dusk, North Carolina. Then again, Dusk, North Carolina is not like other cities. Known as one of the most haunted cities in America, behind Salem, Massachusetts and New Orleans, Louisiana, Dusk is ground zero for Jake's ghost hunting parents.

The Weir family has arrived in Dusk eager to scope out some of the town's 127 reported "paranormal properties," which just happens to be the name of their own ghost hunting show: Paranormal Properties. What Jake doesn't know, and what his parents could never imagine, is that Jake can see ghosts! And hear them. And talk back to them! This talent comes in handy when he runs into Dusk's oldest, most famous ghost: one Frank Barrone, a one-time lounge singer made famous by his booze-soaked ballad, "Barroom Eyes."

Frank was gunned down by a local mobster in 1951 and has been searching for his killer ever since. When he learns that Jake can see and hear him, Frank makes young Jake a deal: if Jake will help Frank find his killer, Frank will help his parents find a ghost to film for their upcoming Halloween Special on Public Access Channel #319. Jake enlists the only friend he's made in Dusk, an overweight tomboy nicknamed "Tank," to help him track down Frank's killer. As clues emerge and old leads heat up, Frank and Jake learn they make quite a team. But will Jake find Frank's killer? And will Frank find a real haunted house in time for Halloween?
