Betty Ren Wright lightly touches on the tension that divides the family. Amy ran away to escape from the responsibility of having to look after her younger sister with special needs. Her mother became upset with the way Amy was acting, and became even more upset that Amy decided to spend some time with Aunt Clare. With an old-school cover (dating back in 1983), Betty Ren Wright’s The Dollhouse Murders is, at first glance, like one of those old books in the thrift store you wouldn’t consider picking up. Yet, as an Apple Chiller, the book has served its purpose. It’s a good ghost story that will send shivers down your spine while also teaching you a lesson about family.

She grabbed them and went back upstairs to her bedroom t Clare went into the parlor. She grabbed them and went back upstairs to her bedroom t Clare went into the parlor to watch television on the little portable set she’d brought with her from Chicago. They didn’t look at each other as they passed in the hall at the foot of the stairs. The bedroom felt chilly and impersonal

After reading so many reviews by adults saying this was their favorite book in around the 5th grade I became intrigued and had to try it myself. My own children may have read it and I just didn't know but I wanted something short to read this afternoon. Great entertainment and if my girls were younger I would recommend it to them.
Amy is just turning 13 and is annoyed with younger sister who is mentally challenged. It seems she is always responsible for her sister and her sister seems to cramp her style. She runs away to her great grandparents' old house to see her Aunt Clare who is there to clean it out and and get it ready to sell. Aunt Clare understands Amy's frustration and suggests that maybe she and Louanne, her sister, need some space from each other. Amy discovers a magnificent dollhouse in the attic that is an exact replica of her great grandparents' house. There are mysterious goings on regarding the dollhouse which frighten Amy but also draw her to it when she believes it might be trying to show her something. A quick read, and even suspenseful and entertaining for a 64 year-old grandmother like me!

Great book for tweens who are not ready for very scary stories yet still want to read something spooky.

I read this when I was 12 and 30 and really loved it both times. It's one of those books you can't put down. BRW is such a good storyteller. I really like her detailed descriptions of the dollhouse and Amy and Ellen's chilling discovery while sifting through old newspaper clippings. You could tell BRW really took her time with this and didn't rush through it to make a buck.

I wish there was a little more character development for Amy and Ellen and less of Louann but you can't have it all. "Dollhouse Murders" is better structured than its counterpart "Wait Til Helen Comes" by Mary Downing Hahn. BUY THIS BECAUSE YOU WILL WANT TO READ IT MORE THAN ONCE :)

This is one of my FAVORITE books! I first read it as a child and now I am having my daughter read it. It is such a great book for preteen girls. The main character is sorting out family relationships while she uncovers a mystery within her aunt's dollhouse.

I read this book as a child when it came out and I've remembered it, so i went looking. Great story with relatable, real people and chills that comfort in the end.

Still a classic

This is one of my all-time favorite books!!! I'm having fun reading it w/my 10 y/o twin boys.
Another fun read for an older woman, even. I enjoyed it very much.
