- I originally also compared this book to Parks & Rec. I'd like to now issue a formal apology to all Hoosiers. As if I could ever write something that captured Indiana life so well.

A solid 4.75
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for this book at BookCon and that's why I am able to provide this review.
First, let me start by saying I loved every second of this book and the second I finished it I wanted to start reading it all over again. Although the blub on the back of the book compares Now Entering Addamsville to Stranger Things mixed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I would compare NEA to the episode of Super ...more
2/23/2019: There's a title change? I personally liked Welcome to Adamsville more, but I still need this like yesterday
I got this ARC at BookCon and thank you to the publisher for providing it in exchange for an honest review.
This was such a fun read! I was really looking forward to it because I absolutely loved Eliza and Her Monsters, and this one did not disappoint. Now Entering Addamsville is about a girl, Zora, who can see ghosts (her whole town is obsessed with ghosts but she is the only one who can see them) and she is being framed for the murder of a janitor at her school who died ...more
Francesca Zappia. That name makes me hit pre-order no matter what the plot is. No matter how the cover looks. Zappia has me spending my time and money on blind faith alone because the moment I finished MADE YOU UP, she became an auto-buy author, and I became a lifelong fan.
What is this book about, you ask?
Our protagonist is named Zora, and she can see ghosts. She comes from a tumultuous fa ...more
If you're here for the Stranger Things meets Buffy comp, I think you'll be fine, whereas I wanted something like Zappia's prior works which this was not.
I don't DNF review much anymore, but I don't want my DNF to put anyone off, because I was branching out and trying something that didn't necessarily sou ...more
Would recommend it to fans of Stranger Things and Riverdale(*cough*the first season*cough*).
Thank you for the opportunity to read and review this novel.
Wow! Francesca Zappia is a new favorite author of mine! I love Scooby Doo and she has taken that and remade it into an original new story. This book is spooky, fun, and an absolute must read! Zora has an ability to see ghosts, but when everything in her life goes sideways she and a group of eccentric characters try to figure out what in the world is going on in their town. I hope there will be more to th ...more
