    No Reading Limit

    I read the extended preview of this book and i gotta say that this book is awesome and the plot ispretty original and ParaNormal is one of those one of a kind boks with amazing thouggts that take some time to think of and the author is amazing by ading small things like Normans mean and annoyig sister ad weird embarrasing moments. The book is very amazing and couIdnt put the book.....or Nook down! I 100 % recommend this book to all ages because there is no inappropriate language and the plot is interesting and it is not very horrifying as it has to deal with the living dead though there csn be scenes that csn make a young child slightly uncomfortable. Wish I could give this amazing book 6/5!
