The Mystery of Locked Rooms is the perfect book for these times. Escape rooms are so enormously popular that an adventurous novel of this kind is a fabulous choice for many ages. I found it hugely entertaining, and I am sixty-six! Lest that deter you from purchasing it for younger (much younger!) people, I have grandchildren who can't wait for this book to be published. The story centers on three close friends, two girls and a boy, who love escape rooms and are extraordinarily good at them. One girl's family falls on difficult times, and the three decide to find out if the legend of a local abandoned funhouse is true. The attraction was never opened but is rumored to have a treasure for anyone who makes their way to the end. This escape house is the grandest and most rigorous of the genre, and the trio have monumental escapades within its walls. Lindsay Currie has outdone herself with this spectacular novel.
Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Young Readers. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book provided by the publisher, Sourcebooks Young Readers, via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This middle grade mystery is fun and exciting. Although, I am not the intended reader, I found this story about three friends exploring a fun house that was abandoned some seventy years earlier to find a mythical treasure a very enjoyable read. Reminded me of the film The Goonies, and had to chuckle when that reference even appeared in the book. If you are a fan of escape rooms (like these three adventurous kids are), then you will enjoy this novel. I have never tried an escape room but want to now! Full of thrills, mystery, and the strong bond of friendship makes this top notch!… (més)

This was a great, ghost story.

I love Lindsay Currie's writing, her stories are engaging and entertaining. I love that this story was based on the Hagenback-Wallace train collision, I learned so much, including that there was a circus company named Hagenback-Wallace.

Looking forward to reading Lindsay's next book, The Mystery of Locked Rooms due to be released Spring 2024.

Let me just quickly come out from where I hid behind the covers. I’m not much for horror. Ghosts are okay, to some degree, but a child ghost that wants to play and grabs your feet from under the bed? NO THANK YOU! Luckily, super sleuth Hazel was there to help me put my fears aside and make me curious about what lies behind the whole thing. Hazel reminded me a lot of Nancy Drew. It was exciting to find all the different clues and piece them together.
I especially liked Hazel and Den’s sibling bonding during their journey to find Everett. Because you should never work alone when hunting a ghost on cursed cemeteries.
Figuring out that part of this book is based on a real-life disaster that happened 100 years ago made everything even more scary. Now, let me get back under my covers, reading my next spooky read.
