If you don't read Tj Perkins books you will be missing an enjoyment in reading. This is a very good story for children and adults also. While reading Mystery of the Attic I forgot it was a childrens story and simply enjoyed reading it. It entertains from the beginning to the end. I recommend this wonderful non violent book to anyones library. GEMorrison

Melissa is a thirteen year old girl who has grown quite accustomed to moving from home to home. From a young age her family has moved at least once a year. Her parents fought a lot and her parents finally divorced.
Now Melissa has a new step sister named Becky as her mother has remarried. They have moved once again, this time into a big eighteenth century farmhouse.
Almost immediately the trouble starts, it appears the house is haunted not by one but two ghosts. One ghost is friendly the other appears quite evil.
Can Melissa and Becky solve the mystery of the ghosts or will the evil of the two prevent the girls from discovering the truth? Will the good ghost help them or the evil ghosts force them away?
TJ Perkins is a wonderful writer for young readers. Heck, this older reader enjoyed the tale. It reminded me of the Nancy Drew and Happy Hollister books I loved so much as a child. The mystery was well carried out and the developing bond between the stepsisters was handled well.

I loved the way you built this story. I'll bet you'd be fun around a campfire in the Rockies telling tales of Sasquatch. Nice job TJ.

Very cool! How often we think we need support when we really need confidence in the gifts God has given us. I love this story.

good story to tell. common bonds to the past brings out the best in people who make history with bygone eras whether ships, planes, tanks or anything else. someone has touched something somewhere that will always impact our thoughts even if they are of ghost. lol. glad i found your site.

Some excellent dialog, though I had difficulty reading at times because the layout is a single paragraph. Still I enjoyed the tale.

Nice read. I really enjoyed it. I saw a few interresting things while in the Army. My unit had been recommisioned after years in a wharehouse. Very old Cav Regiment, Had enough history to be awarded the only unit to train Recon Scouts from then on. Funny thing doing CQ in those late hours, all that old memrobilia from past wars and dead troopers poems on the walls.

Cute story, TJ. I can just picture you and your cousins laughing together, running to tell grandma. Though she didn't own a barn, this brought back memories of long summer days spent visiting my own dear grandmother. I enjoyed this very much!

Sounds deja-vu and some of the Ghosts I encountered were mean two legged ones. Good story. Tanks for sharing it.

I liked how this one is written, strong pacing and I can relate because I had my imagination get away from me on a number of times when I stood watch. I like the psychological horror elements in this one, you might not realize that you wrote a horror story but this one seems like a very solid horror title from you as well as a mystery/suspense the two genres are related. It was one that kept me reading until the very end. You should try your hand at writing supernatural because if you can do this one in such a strong matter.
