Tunnel of Bones by Victoria Schwab is the second book in a juvenile fiction series for 4-6th graders.
Trouble just seems to find Cassidy Blake no matter where she goes. So when she and her best–ghost–friend, Jacob, end up in Paris, it’s no wonder they attract a poltergeist in one of the most haunted cities in the world.
It may seem like fun, following her ghost-hunting, reality TV show parents from city to city but Cassidy is no ordinary girl. She can see ghosts and it is her job to help them cross the veil. But this poltergeist seems to be different and it will take all of Cassidy’s new found skills to stop it before it is too late.
Will Cassidy and Jacob get the job done or will they lose themselves to the veil?
I really like this Cassidy Blake series. It’s a fun story about family and friendship, with a little bit of spookiness thrown in. I really like this dynamic and tension building between Cassidy and Jacob. You know where the story will almost have to lead and I like that sense of foreshadowing.
One of the things I like most about this book is that we are getting a glimpse of the history of real places. The Tunnel of Bones is a real place and through this book we get a picture of not only what it is like but the history behind it as well.
For a juvenile fiction book, there is just enough scary thrills to make the story fun but not enough to give one nightmares. This book has a lot of heart and I think it would be great for both boys and girls.
This one gets a high 4.5 stars from me.
That’s all for now!
