What would you get if you took Supernatural, set it in Indiana, and replaced the Winchester gang with a group of strong females that don’t back down? The answer is Now Entering Addamsville by Francesca Zappia.
Laugh out Loud Funny, Quick Witted, and an Adventure-Packed Ending
This book is delightful, unique, and without a doubt deserves a playlist!
Every night Zora Novak goes out walking alone. People in her small town think they know what she is up to, that they have her figured out, but all is not what it seems-especially for Zora. The public sees a rebel, a trouble-maker, from a loser family. What they don’t see is a strong, caring female that sees ghosts and hunts fire-starters. Yeah, her town is haunted. But while everyone else attempts to capitalize on the ghosts, Zora is trying to prevent anyone else from dying. This book is filled with mystery and is the story of an underdog who must develop her own “Scooby Gang” to protect herself, her family, and her hometown.
The tone of this playlist is different than my first, which was inspired by Daisy Jones and the Six. This one is darker, it is filled with music about being stuck in a small town where no one understands you. There are songs about navigating darkness and refusing to back down when faced with oppression.
So what do you think?
Now Entering Addamsville is available from FCPL in hardcover. Give it a read and let me know if you think I chose the right songs to represent Zora her story.
