Somerville, MA, USA – WEBWIRE

“The writing is quick, to the point, and visual.” Foreword Reviews

“Go Ask the Dead” (ReadersMagnet; 2019) by Frank Tropea is a novel that, according to Kirkus Reviews, “offers a family drama with supernatural elements.” The book has been described as “a paranormal, erotic novel” by BlueInk Review and a “gender-bending thriller” by Foreword Reviews.
In “Go Ask the Dead,” a 15-year-old Amanda “Mandy” Mannon learns about her family’s powerful occult history. Amanda is a beautiful young girl with psychic abilities - and an insatiable appetite for sex, which she inherits from her promiscuous mother, Aurelia. When Aurelia goes missing for weeks, she allows her handsome stepfather, Ted, to seduce her.
Amanda learns about Aurelia’s death at the hands of Ted from her ancestress, Lily, who appears to her as a ghost. Lily, a spirit guide, informs Amanda that she is able to “see” the dead. Amanda avenges her mother by killing her stepfather.
Amanda is then sent to live with her religious great-aunt, Lavinia, who frowns on the occult. She unearths more of her family’s occult history and conjures the ghost of a young Confederate soldier, William, who was killed at Gettysburg. Like her Aunt Eliza who was sexually obsessed with ghosts, Amanda becomes involved with William. She also gets into a relationship with a human, Craig. What unfolds next is a provocative - and disturbing - narrative.
“Go Ask the Dead” becomes a subject of review by book reviewers for its unusual premise and storyline. “The idea of a teenage girl with witchlike powers who interacts with an array of ghosts that includes a rebel soldier is an inventive premise for a novel,” said Kirkus Reviews. “Tropea delivers rich and tantalizing supernatural and historical details.”
Foreword Reviews focuses on the aspects that make “Go Ask the Dead” “gender-bending”: the audience’s sense of Amanda; the suspension of belief that goes with the narrative; and dark humor. The review also touches on the novel’s treatment of the subject of race and racism.
