The Museum of Mary Child – Cassandra Golds

Heloise lives with her godmother in an isolated cottage. Next door is a sinister museum dedicated to the memory of Mary Child. Visitors enter it with a smile and depart with fear in their eyes. One day, Heloise finds a doll under the floorboards. Against her godmother’s wishes, she keeps it. And that’s when the delicate truce between Heloise and her godmother begins to unravel . . .

Heloise runs away. She journeys far, but one day she must return to uncover the secret at the heart of her being.

This book feels like a fairy tale, but it’s partially a horror story too.  Very well written.  A little odd, but in a very good way! Try this if you like fantasy, fairy tales, etc.   – Jessica, Teen Librarian
