From Francesca Zappia, the acclaimed author of Eliza and Her Monsters! When Zora Novak is framed for a crime she didn't commit, she must track down the true culprit and clear her name before it's too late. But in a small town obsessed with ghosts, getting people to believe the truth might prove to be impossible. Stranger Things meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this eerie murder mystery. "A darkly humorous, rapid-fire read in which the living are sometimes scarier than the dead."--Kirkus When someone burns down the home of the school janitor and he dies in the blaze, everyone in Addamsville, Indiana, points a finger at Zora. Never mind that Zora has been on the straight and narrow since her father was thrown in jail. With everyone looking for evidence against her, her only choice is to uncover the identity of the real killer. There's one big problem--Zora has no leads. No one does. Addamsville has a history of tragedy, and thirty years ago a similar string of fires left several townspeople dead. The arsonist was never caught. Now, Zora must team up with her cousin Artemis--an annoying self-proclaimed Addamsville historian--to clear her name. But with a popular ghost-hunting television show riling up the townspeople, almost no support from her family and friends, and rumors spinning out of control, things aren't looking good. Zora will have to read between the lines of Addamsville's ghost stories before she becomes one herself. Acclaimed author Francesca Zappia has a perfectly pitched teen voice that shines in this inventive novel. Now Entering Addamvsille is perfect for fans of Brittany Cavallaro, Victoria Schwab, and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Includes interior spot illustrations from the author.… (mais)

Addamsville, Indiana is a town like no other. It's inhabitants include not only people but also ghosts and firestarters. The firestarters have made Zora's life difficult. Not only has she been accused of starting fires they have set, but her self-appointed job is that of firestarter hunter. Zora is able to see ghosts and uses them at times to help her find the "entrances" where firestarters have come into our world and where they must be sent to get them out. With Zora's father being released from prison in a few days, this isn't the time for her to get involved in a hunt for another firestarter, but Ludwig, the firestarter that took her fingers, is back and she must find him before he destroys the town.
Now Entering Addamsville incorporates so many different story elements in such a clever way that it is continuously moving forward at a fast pace. Zora is an interesting protagonist that deals with a difficult life in ways that make her sympathetic and relatable. A fun, very well-written story with a variety of twists and turns and ambiguous characters that keep the reader guessing right up until the end. I would love to read a sequel to this book. ( )

Once again The Novel Neighbor comes through with a fantastic recommendation! I’ve been reading a lot of LGBTQIA+ books lately, especially books with ace characters, and this was one of many recommended by my favorite indie bookstore. Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia is a wonderful story that will draw you in, with a spunky and rebellious ace protagonist!

Addamsville is haunted, in fact it is a tourist trap for that very reason, but Zora Novak knows this better than anyone else. Why, you ask? Because she can see the ghosts that haunt her small town. Zora’s mother had the same ability, and not only taught her about the ghosts, but about dangerous creatures she called firestarters, that start fires in order to kill people, so they can feed off their souls. When a new firestarter comes to Addamsville, Zora believes it is up to her to stop it since her mother disappeared years ago. But when Zora is blamed for starting some of the fires, she is not so sure that she can stop this firestarter without becoming an enemy of her beloved town.

This was such a unique and wonderful book! While the protagonist, Zora, is ace, the story does not focus on that, which is nice because I think it’s important to not only have stories centering on asexuality as an identity, but also stories that show asexual people simply living their lives. Additionally, I absolutely loved Zora’s rebelliousness, independence, and overall vibe. She is depicted in a way that comes close to being a cliché, but not in an annoying or overdone way.

Furthermore, I think this book really stands out because it’s not only a ghost story, but a ghost story with a unique spin. Zora and her family’s history with firestarters really added depth to the novel and made it more compelling to read. I enjoyed the fact that Zora’s mother and aunt had their own background with firestarters, and also that Zora herself has some bad blood with the dreaded creatures as well.

On top of that, I think the other characters in the novel add more to the story without taking the focus away from Zora’s experiences. The other characters were well-developed, original, and didn’t overshadow Zora herself.

There was only one issue I really had with the book: IS THERE NOT A SEQUEL?!?!?! The book does leave some open endings, but nothing too major. In my opinion, there are enough loose ends that Zappia could write a sequel, but not too many that it takes away from this book as a standalone. I will warn you that the ending will leave you shocked! I think I probably read that last sentence at least 10 times, flipping back and forth between the ending and the map at the beginning!

Overall, this book is fun, mysterious, and compelling, and I would highly recommend it for any reader, regardless of genre preference. I don’t think you need to like most paranormal books to enjoy this one. It also has interesting and original features, and memorable characters. If you’re looking for a spooky story to pull you in, this is the book for you! ( )

I guess this was okay? I didn't really enjoy it but it wasn't bad enough to dnf. Mostly just blahs. I wanted this to get me in the fall spirit, but that didn't happen. I was expecting a spooky atmosphere, a quirky town, and a family mystery, but I was just so underwhelmed by everything about Now Entering Addamsville that I know it's going to be one of those books that I instantly forget everything about it.

The biggest problem I had with the story was the worldbuilding. There was virtually none and we're introduced to these new creatures, firestarters, that have a legacy in the town and with Zora's family but I still feel like I don't know a lot about them and it was hard for me to picture them while reading. And I had to reread quite a few passages for clairty, and it just got a bit tedious instead of enjoyable. And the people in this town were the absolute WORST!

I just feel let down on multiple levels. I feel like I can't go into any specifics because virtually anything I say would be spoilers (the synopsis does a good job of not giving anything away) and I don't want to ruin the book fro someone else. I'll just say that while the book did have interesting parts, I already forgot about 80% of it and I finished it 2 days ago. I think it's just one of those books not meant for me.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )
