Nora Reilly is an old soul. Her idea of fun is reading a Jane Austen novel in her family's Victorian home. She didn't expect to find a kindred spirit in the house's oldest occupant, Tom Barnes. Tom is a sweet and handsome boy who died over a hundred years ago. His soul is trapped in the house, and he's not alone. There are other mysterious tenants . . . and darker shadows, sinister and nameless. Does love stand a ghost of a chance against such odds? Nora's friends aren't so sure. They think she should give up the ghost and look for a boyfriend who is a little more lively. But Nora will do whatever it takes to make the relationship work, even against the threat of meddling ghost hunters, snooping psychics, and the worst danger of all to her first solid relationship her parents.

I love this graphic book series from Graphic Universe.

This book introduces us to Nora Reilly who loves Jane Austen. Her family just moved into an old Victorian home. Seems others still live there. When Nora meets Tom, a ghost, who still lives in the house, it’s love at first sight. Her family though wants to get rid of the ghosts and nothing seems to help. Not the paranormal ghost hunters. Not psychics. Nora in the meantime finds herself falling in love with Tom. Does she really want him to leave?

I love the graphics in this series. This is a really fun series that uses the graphic novel format to tell paranormal tales. In this book there’s twists on the whole ghost hunter premise which is funny. Plus Tom and Nora's relationship reminded me of Meg Cabot's Mediator series. Only in this book, Tom can show himself to Nora’s friends who find maybe it’s not so cool to be dating a ghost.

Great read for reluctant readers and those who love paranormal tales as much as I do. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Good Points
1. Fun graphic novel series
2. Love the paranormal twist
