The main character in “The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing” is Mo. She is a waitress at a café (which is odd since she is only in the 6th grade). Mo and her friend Dale run the Desperado Detective Agency. They like to solve mysteries in their hometown called Tupelo Landing.
When Ms. Lana, a rich old lady accidently purchases the Tupelo Inn, she finds out that the Inn comes with a ghost. Not long after that, the sixth grade has to interview an elderly person for a report. Mo and Dale decide to interview Ms. Lana but they find out that someone else is already interviewing her. So they decide to interview the ghost of Tupelo Landing because no one is older than the dead. They try to find out who the ghost is and why she died.
To talk to the ghost they try writing letters, setting up times to meet and doing whatever they could to communicate, even ghost bait. After many attempts they find out what the ghost is named. Finally they try a ghost stakeout. The story gets really interesting as they get closer and closer to solving the mystery.
I liked the big mystery but also the other small mysteries in the story like why Red Baker was counting steps in the woods or where Harm Crenshaw lived. I didn’t like how the author tried to use slang because they said ain’t too much. Also, there were too many minor characters like Mayor Little and his wife.
This book is good for both boys and girls. If you like mysteries you will like this book. I give this book 3 ½ stars out of five.
