Take A Voyage On The Titanic 2!



I have always been a fan of children stories, but due to the surge of unwanted vampire titles, thanks to the overrated Twilight Saga, I haven't read too many children book titles over the last few years. During my elementary years, I became a little obsessed with the Titanic shipwreck, reading any book and watching any documentary on the subject. After the overrated 1997 film, I became less interested in it, but my interest returned in 2012 during the 100th anniversary of the disaster. That being said, it is pretty obvious why I wanted to read the first book in The Haunted Museum series.

The Titanic Locket centers on sisters, Samantha and Jessica, who are on a spring vacation in England with their parents on the cruise ship, Titanic 2, a replica of the original ship. The girls visit the Haunted Museum, where there is a wonderful Titanic exhibit featuring wax figures and jewelry.

After Jessica opens a locket at the museum, strange things being to occur. From creepy sounds from within the walls to possible ghosts walking on the deck, Samantha and Jessica aren't exactly on a dream cruise. The girls are determined to solve the mystery behind the locket, no matter what the costs are.

Growing up reading Goosebumps on Fear Street titles, I have always loved reading a good ghost story and that is exactly what I got when I read The Haunted Museum: The Titanic Locket by Suzanne Weyn, which is a well written mystery for kids. Overall, I thought the book was a breath of fresh air compared to recent middle-grade book series. The characters are likeable and there are plenty of twists and turns around every chapter to keep your eyes glued to the pages. Look for the second book in the series, The Haunted Museum: The Phantom Music Box, in bookstores on August 26th!
