A handsome stranger. A dead billionaire. A citywide treasure hunt. Tuesday Mooney's life is about to change...forevermore. Tuesday Mooney is a loner. She keeps to herself, begrudgingly socializes, and spends much of her time watching oldTwin Peaks andX-Files DVDs. But when Vincent Pryce, Boston's most eccentric billionaire, dies--leaving behind an epic treasure hunt through the city, with clues inspired by his hero, Edgar Allan Poe--Tuesday's adventure finally begins.   Puzzle-loving Tuesday searches for clue after clue, joined by a ragtag crew: a wisecracking friend, an adoring teen neighbor, and a handsome, cagey young heir. The hunt tests their mettle, and with other teams from around the city also vying for the promised prize--a share of Pryce's immense wealth--they must move quickly. Pryce's clues can't be cracked with sharp wit alone; the searchers must summon the courage to face painful ghosts from their pasts (some morevivid than others) and discover their most guarded desires and dreams. A deliciously funny ode to imagination, overflowing with love letters to art, fromThe Westing Gameto Madonna to the Knights of the Round Table,Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts is the perfect read for thrill seekers, wanderers, word lovers, and anyone looking for an escape to the extraordinary.… (lisätietoja)

This is my go-to recommendation for my children's literature friends who want to read a book for adults. It's like The Westing Game, but for grown-ups. Full of humor, pop culture references, and bad boys who may not be bad but maybe actually they are ... it's a delightful read.

Loved Tuesday Mooney and her ragtag group of friends in this book! For a book that launches its quest with a pretty dramatic death ( of a lovable and quirky billionaire), it breathes with appreciation of life, and self-discovery, and compassion. There is so much humour, and smarts, and wonderful dialogue between the characters, And who doesn't like a great puzzle to solve???? Enjoy this book, folks! ( )

Much like with Bellweather Rhapsody, I enjoyed Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts, but I wouldn't re-read it anytime soon, if ever. I loved everything up until Tuesday starts to lose her self over Archie and everything from the funeral to the end -- the middle, not so much. There's pop culture references out the wazzoo, also loved. And if you're a child of the 90s or just love the 90s, you'll really connect with those references too.

When Tuesday Mooney was sixteen, her best friend Abby Hobbes disappeared, and her voice has lived in Tuesday's head, on and off, ever since. But Tuesday has her shit together: she lives in Somerville and works in Boston and works for a hospital, researching potential financial donors. Her life gets a lot more interesting when Vincent Pryce dies, dramatically, at a fundraiser, and leaves behind, in his own obituary, a puzzle for anyone to solve. Tuesday, of course, is on the case, along with her friend Dex, and her teenage neighbor Dorry ("Next Dorry"), who wants to win for her own reasons after reading about Pryce's collection of haunted odds and ends: she wants a pair of goggles that will allow her to see the ghost of her mother. At the center of Pryce's game is the Arches family: disappeared patriarch, eldest son Nathaniel, wife Constance, daughter Emerson, and disappeared-reappeared youngest son, Edgar (Archie), who teams up with Tuesday for his own reasons.

TUESDAY MOONEY TALKS TO GHOSTS abounds with clues to its high-stakes treasure hunt. Threaded through Pryce's game is the question: what is money really for? And what, in the right hands, can it do? Tuesday, Dorry, Dex, and Archie are all richly developed characters. Most characters are white, except Dorry (half-Chinese, half-Jewish, her friend Ned Kennedy, and Pryce's widow Lyle.

Quotes

It's easier to notice what's important when you're outside looking in. (12)

Her adult life had turned out to be a series of patterns and routines. (48)

It was a life without an organizing hunger, and it was slightly surprising...that the reward for achieving one's goals wasn't total satisfaction. (50)

Elision was the best kind of lying. You didn't even have to lie, just selectively tell. (86)

"Money has meaning when you put it to work." (Pryce, 134)

[Dorry] was half frustrated, half excited, half nervous, half elated. She was too many halves. She was twice as much as she usually was. (179)

"I've learned to embrace the mysterious. Because the strange, the extraordinary - those experiences that make you look at the world like you've never seen it before, really pay attention to it - the strange changes you. Shows you new things about yourself. About life. Other people." (Rabbit to Tuesday, 231)

What had seemed boring once had become infinitely interesting, essential even, now that it was gone. (240)

"Vince loved games. And he thought too many people had forgotten how to play. They'd been brainwashed into thinking the entire point of playing a game - or working or living or doing anything - is to win." (Lyle, 290)

If she looked cool, it was because cool was the only costume she had in her closet. (291)

"Be generous. And be generous now, because the future isn't a destination. It's an extension of how we choose to live today." (Tuesday's interpretation of Pryce's intentions, 292)

And a living wasn't something you made but something you did. Again and again, over and over, always, always becoming. (Dex, 324)

"To anonymously donate money. Like...angel investing. Crossed with microfinancing. Crossed with...MacArthur fellowships?" (Tuesday to Lyle, 354)

"Was all of this a job interview?"
"Is anything...ever only one thing?" (Tuesday and Lyle, 356) ( )

I'm a sucker for anything Westing Game-related. I enjoyed the Boston setting too. Enjoyable plot with satisfying surprises. Characters you like being with. Strong ending. ( )
