Within days of moving into her great aunt's creepy Southern mansion, 12 year old April discovers things are not as they seem. Kids in her new school whisper rumors about the house being haunted, and April is having some really crazy dreams. She soon finds the lost diary of her great-great-grandmother, and learns about a family tragedy and a mystery. Will April find the missing locket before it's too late?

The Secret of the Missing Locket was a great mystery written for children ages 8-12 and would be enjoyed by both boys and girls (April's best friend is a boy and she has a brother), or as a family read aloud. Who wouldn't find exploring an old mansion full of hundred year old stuff fascinating and mysterious? The author's descriptions are wonderful and make you feel like you are in the story. The characters are well developed and children in that 8-12 year old range will be able to relate to them. The story was mysterious without being scary. Parents with sensitive children might want to know that the possibility of the house being haunted is mentioned several times, and the tragedy that April discovers does involve a child. The parallels between April and her great-great-grandmother added another interesting element to the story. I did feel that the ending was a bit rushed. The mystery is solved and the book ends. I would have liked to see a bit of the story after the mystery was solved.

My 10 year old daughter enjoys mysteries, but it can be hard to find some that are not too violent or dark. This book is just right for tween girls. Deborah did a great job of making April come to life as a likeable girl sleuth. My daughter said she hopes to read more books featuring April in the future!

I strongly recommend this book for seven, eight and nine year olds. The mystery, the language and the target audience are all the same as the classic Key to the Treasure a perenniel favorite of children in that age range. Other reviewers have said the book is appropriate to tweens and I disagree. The Missing Locket is too straight forward. There are very few clues and there just is not enough complexity for tweens. While the search through the house reminded me of some of my favorite tween books by Elizabeth Enright Gone-Away Lake and Return to Gone-Away, the relative simplicity of the language and linear time sequence just make me think second third grade.

I read this book in about 30 minutes. (I am a very fast reader.) It was pretty fun to read. Nothing scary or inappropriate. I would recommend it to a third or fourth grader. I don't know what age the main character is, but that age group would definitely like it. I feel that the ending was kind of rushed. I wish it was longer, but it really is good to have a change and read a refreshing story once every few days. I hope that you love it as much as I do!

It is so good and so mysterious.!! I love the characters. The best part was when they found the secret locket in the piano, the picture of the secret locket on the cover of the book was awesome.
