Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts by Kate Racculia

"It’s hard to imagine a more fun premise: Boston’s most eccentric billionaire dies and leaves behind an epic, Edgar Allan Poe-themed scavenger hunt throughout the city’s streets. And each of Racculia’s wonderful, colorful characters—from super-smart former Goth girl Tuesday to reluctant finance bro Dex to bereaved high schooler Dorry—has a different reason for getting involved. This is both a page-turning adventure and a heartfelt ode to both friendship and purpose, and it’s a total blast to read."

Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching old Twin Peaks and X-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston’s most eccentric billionaire, dies—leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe—Tuesday’s adventure finally begins.
Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize—a share of Pryce’s immense wealth—they must move quickly. Pryce’s clues can't be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some more vivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams.

A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, from The Westing Game to Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table, Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary.
