Ghosts are more than just stories for sixteen year old Lucy Vitalis and her paranormal investigator father. Ghosts are their livelihood. But when they move to small town Sterben, Kansas for a case, Lucy discovers that not everyone takes the undead as seriously as she does. What she finds instead are eccentric locals, the Ghost of William Shakespeare, and a dark secret that threatens to send the entire town into hell if she and her new friends can't stop it in time. It's a race for survival in this paranormal comedy featuring a colorful cast of characters exploring the powers of friendship, murder, and exploding ducks.

Reviews

The characters are outrageous and loveable, and you find yourself rooting for them despite their flaws. I loved all the hidden references and found myself eager to figure out what hijinks the crew was going to get into next. If you’re a fan of mystery and comedy, do yourself a favor and read this book!

This book has it all: family drama, new kid in school, ghost hunters, the start of beautiful friendships, small town rivalry, and so much more you won’t see coming.

It was written brilliantly and would shock me right up to the last line of the book. I’m literally on edge to find out if there will be a sequel or if this is one of a kind. Either way, I’m a happy book worm right now!

This is exactly the kind of book I expected from Maddie Gudenkauf- funny, over-the-top, and endearing….This book actually made me laugh out loud a few times, chuckle in my head often, and feel feelings in a particularly quiet scene somewhere in the middle. I must admit that I don’t often read YA fiction, but I had genuine fun reading this absurd, little ghost story.”
