Finally, why is Jinx's mom concerned about Jackson?
When I found Case #1: The Haunting of Apartment in The Paranormalists series by Megan Atwood, I was looking for books that would fit our Halloween. Oct 1, Case # The Haunting of Apartment (Paperback). Megan Atwood. Published by Darby Creek Publishing, United States (). ISBN
If I had a daughter who, in the summer between middle school and high school had a major personality change and became hostile, pathologically unable to trust anyone, and had no friends other than one boy all because no one paid attention to her, she's the one I'd be concerned about!
I find it hard to believe that parents strict enough to set a curfew aren't concerned about Jinx's attitude or the amount of time Jackson hangs out in her bedroom and let her go off to a sleepover with a girl they don't know. Verdict: The ghost hunting plot would make a passable middle grade novel or even a good teen title for struggling readers, but only if you completely rewrote the main characters. Their behavior and motivations don't make sense and the awkward and choppy writing style is hard to read. Not recommended. This one looked like it might be just the thing, so I snapped it up.
Think Scooby Doo without so many people, or a dog, but with some nasty ghosts. After watching Ghost Hunters on TV, my friends and I would definitely have at least thought about doing something like these kids did.

Remember me. I really liked the book, and was surprised by the ending as to what the apartment was really about, I found it very interesting and want to read the entire series.

As if he'd seen a ghost. Jinx was a social reject who became a punked-out paranormal investigator. Jackson is a jock by day and Jinx's ghost-hunting partner by night. When a popular girl named Emily asks the duo to explore a haunting in her dad's apartment, Jinx is skeptical—but Jackson insists they take the case.
And the truth they find is even stranger than Emily's story. Quick Links Amazon. Amazon Kindle 0 editions. It looked like it would be easy until real blood began to flow. Was their little venture into the paranormal going to be their last? This is a short, fast-paced paranormal mystery geared toward the young or reluctant reader.
Well, maybe big time freaky cases. This tale moved right along with just the right amount of tension that will keep readers wanting more. Jinx and Jackson are excited at the prospect of solving paranormal cases together and with one case behind them and an awesome website, the stage has been set. I liked the duo, the plot, and the pacing of the story, a perfect formula to entice the reluctant reader. If you have a youngster who likes stories a bit on the freaky side, this is one series you may wish to look at!
