The Haunted Museum: The Titanic Locket book coverThe Haunted Museum: The Titanic Locket (for ages 8-12) by Suzanne Weyn

It is spring break and Samantha and Jessica are not entirely looking forward to their family vacation. On a replica of the Titanic, the girls will follow the original Titanic’s journey from England, Ireland, and France to New York; that is, without the hitting-an-iceberg-and-sinking part. With no Internet or cell phone access, it will be like stepping into a time capsule.

Each guest is assigned a passenger from the original Titanic passenger list. Samantha and Jessica The Haunted Museum: The Titanic Locket book coverare given twins Alice and Matilda Littlefield. Although Jessica is actually 18 months older than Samantha, they look like twins, and strangely, they bear a close resemblance to the Littlefield twins.

Before boarding the ship, Sam and Jess go to a museum where they look at Titanic memorabilia. Despite the “DO NOT TOUCH” signs everywhere, Jess picks up a pretty locket. But soon after, strange things start happening to the girls.

The numbers on their room mysteriously change from 266 to 299. The locket begins showing up in their room, and even around their necks! Something sinister is at work. There are ghosts who are out to get Samantha and Jessica, and who will make this a vacation the girls will never forget – if they get out alive.

This is a good story for those who are fascinated by the Titanic, or for anyone who loves a good ghost story.

    I love the story of “Titanic” because the ship was very fancy.I like books about ghost mysteries so I would love this book.If you (whoever is reading this) like these kind of books,I would suggest the book “Ghosts of the Titanic”.Spoiler Alert:It’s about a guy,Kevin Messager,who goes back in time to 1912,on the Titanic to save a baby named Michael McConell.

    It was so good when I read it. But the only thing is that I couldn’t tell who was Samantha and who was jessica in the video. But it was so much mysterie in the book. Well I hope it becomes a good book for a bunch of kids.
