Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Zora Novak is framed for a crime she didn't commit--in a town obsessed with ghosts, will she be able to find the culprit and clear her name before it's too late?"--Provided by publisher.
"Someone burns down the home of the school janitor and he dies in the blaze. Everyone in Addamsville, Indiana, points a finger at Zora Novak, despite the fact she has been on the straight and narrow since her father was thrown in jail. Addamsville has a history of tragedy, and thirty years ago a similar string of fires left several townspeople dead. The arsonist was never caught. Teaming up with her cousin Artemis, an annoying self-proclaimed Addamsville historian, Zora must deal 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. Getting people to believe the truth might prove to be impossible."--

    Addamsville, Indiana, may be Zora Novak's home, but the townspeople sure aren't her biggest fans. Her mother was the town weirdo before she disappeared, and her father was a con man who charmed half of Addamsville's residents out of their savings before he was sent to prison. But Zora, unlike her older sister, knows a little about why their mother vanished. Like her, Zora can see ghosts, and she hunts the monstrous firestarters who stalk their town. This has the downside, however, of giving Zora, who's been found near a few fires, the reputation of an arsonist. When the school janitor—one she'd fought with—dies in a house fire, everyone points the finger at Zora, and she has to join forces with her obnoxious, rich-girl cousin Artemis, the only person who knows her secret, to clear her name and find the real killer. Zappia (Eliza and Her Monsters, 2017) threads her fantasy mystery through with thoughtful sketches of class dynamics and family tensions. Like Kiersten White's Slayer (2019), this is girl power for a new era. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
