4.0 out of 5 stars Great Mystery for Tweens! October 15, 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced mystery for tween girls November 30, 2011
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!
