    Can the stepsisters solve the mystery?

    Melissa is a thirteen year old girl who has grown quite accustomed to moving from home to home. From a young age her family has moved at least once a year. Her parents fought a lot and her parents finally divorced. Now Melissa has a new step sister named Becky as her mother has remarried. They have moved once again, this time into a big eighteenth century farmhouse. Almost immediately the trouble starts, it appears the house is haunted not by one but two ghosts. One ghost is friendly the other appears quite evil. Can Melissa and Becky solve the mystery of the ghosts or will the evil of the two prevent the girls from discovering the truth? Will the good ghost help them or the evil ghosts force them away? TJ Perkins is a wonderful writer for young readers. Heck this older reader enjoyed the tale. It reminded me of the Nancy Drew and Happy Hollister books I loved so much as a child. The mystery was well carried out and the developing bond between the stepsisters was handled well.

    Mystery of the Attic

    Thirteen-year-old Melissa¿s mom remarries, and their house isn¿t big enough for Melissa¿s new stepdad and his daughter, Becky. Melissa doesn¿t mind moving, really. She and her mom have moved plenty of times. What is different for Melissa is that this time they are sharing the ancient farmhouse. And it¿s not just Dad and Becky that she¿s got to get used to. She¿s certain there is something, someone, in the attic. Melissa bonds with her new stepsister as they try to unravel and amend the secrets that the home has held for centuries. The haunting only occurs when the girls are alone, so they are forced to fight the evil without help from their skeptical parents. However, the spirit of a kind young man comes to their aid, in the hope that by righting past wrongs he will be released to, at long last, rest in peace. Reminiscent of Nancy Drew or The Hardy Boys, MYSTERY OF THE ATTIC will captivate young readers and their parents alike. This book gives validation to every child whose Mom has ever uttered, 'Nobody¿s on the roof, honey, it¿s just the wind blowing in the trees.' And although this novel has a gratifying conclusion, I anxiously await its sequel. TJ Perkins is an author to watch

    Nail Bitting Suspense!

    In her second novel, author TJ Perkins has managed to create a story that captivates and compels the reader into the adventures of Melissa and her stepsister Becky as they try to unravel the mystery. Her writing is clear, crisp and written with such genuine care for the subject and the characters that you can't help but be drawn in. I found that with my own child, it kept her interested, and was not a chore for her to finish; she enjoyed it from cover to cover, as did I. Add to this that the author writes from her own experiences when she was 13, and this makes for a gripping tale that is near to impossible to put down once you start. I hope there are more books to come from the mind of TJ Perkins, and I for one, will be reading them as quick as I can get my hands on them.
