Convince us to read the book: This was an excellent book.  It was so good, I read it in one day and I would not put it down. It is only 300 pages so it's not horribly long, but for being 300 pages, there is a lot of information.
Memorable or Forgettable: It was a great book.  If I had to choose one thing that was bad, it would be that it was maybe a little to crammed. Like maybe the publisher had said, "Ok the plot of this book is about a ghost killing people and you have to fit it into 300 pages. Ta-ta. Good luck!"
Cover: I thought that the cover did an ok job of explaining the book.
Age Range: 12 through 18 and up
Quality: 3Q Readable
Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
Annotation: While in Paris, France, on a class trip, Colette Iselin enlists the help of her charming French tour guide to help uncover a possible connection between Marie Antoinette, a series of horribly gruesome murders, and perhaps her own history.
