Title: DOLL BONES.

What you think about the Book?

The three kids are in middle school and Zach’s father pushed him to give up make-believe, and Zach quit the game. Their friendship was tested when Poppy declared she'd been having dreams about the Queen—and the ghost of a girl who did not rest until the bone-china doll is buried in her empty grave.Zach and Alice and Poppy then set off on one last adventure to lay the Queen’s ghost to rest, but nothing went according to plan, and as their adventure turned into an epic journey, creepy things began to happen.

I liked this book very much. The story was extremely gripping and it made me want to keep on reading. The only downfall of this book is the beginning, which was fairly boring. The idea of the Queen in her castle was good but nothing happened, until Poppy took the Queen out of her glass case. Bringing in the girl ghost of Eleanor made it exciting and interesting. The strange things which happens during their journey was perfectly executed. I recommend this book to all who love the suspense and creepiness witch horror books bring!
