I loved this book because it sometimes gave me goosebumps. For example, when Claire, Jeff and David are in the secret passageway, David falls through a broken staircase. Also, when they are in a dark room, they see a portrait that looks like Nettie Tuttle. I had many favorite parts but my absolute favorite part was when they choose to go look for more clues instead of going to the movies. My favorite character is Claire. I like her because she is brave. For example, when they are in the secret passageway, she says, “I’ll lead the way.”
I recommend this book to third to sixth graders who like intense mysteries. I also recommend this book to third to sixth graders who like to be scared once in a while. Since I like to be scared once in a while, I couldn’t put this book down!
