Curiosity House: The Shrunken Head by Lauren Oliver

Four children named Thomas, Max, Pippa, and Sam are “freaks”, so to say. They first lived in orphanages before they were transferred to Dumfrey’s Dime Museum. An amazonian shrunken head is put on display. Immediately following, a trail of murders ticks off. A newspaper man, Bill Evans, writes stories on these murders. As he closes in around the case, he too dies a frightful death. The children are the only ones who possess the powers to stop these murders. They have only a matter of time left to figure out who murdered these people before it was too late, or their loving caretaker would be killed. In the end, they find the person who committed the crime, but he got away. This book is filled with mystery and danger from cover to cover. I really enjoyed it.♣
