The Pirate's Coin (Sixty-Eight Rooms Adventures Series #3) by Marianne Malone, Greg Call

Fans of magic, mystery, and adventure will love the third The Sixty-Eight Rooms Adventure—a perfect next step for kids who love the Magic Tree House series, and just right for readers who love Chasing Vermeer, The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and Wonderstruck. Sixth Graders Ruthie and Jack return to the Art Institute of Chicago's magical Thorne Rooms. During a school presentation, Ruthie and Jack discover that their classmate Kendra is descended from Phoebe Monroe, the young slave they befriended when they traveled to 19th-century South Carolina. Kendra tells them that long ago her family lost their good name and their business selling herbal remedies when mobsters accused them of stealing the recipes! Only Ruthie and Jack know the truth--because only they know about the secret ledger that Phoebe wrote the recipes in long ago! Ruthie and Jack's mission to clear Kendra's name takes them back to the Thorne Rooms, where a mysterious old coin leads them to 1753 Cape Cod and to Jack's own ancestor . . . the pirate Jack Norfleet! But playing with history can be dangerous! Suddenly, Jack's very existence is in jeopardy! Can Ruthie and Jack find the proof they need to help Kendra? And can they fix the past and save Jack's future . . . before it's too late?

These books are great! Did you know that the Thorne Rooms are real? I want to go see them because they sound so cool in these books.

The story of making oneself small and going into tiny reproduction old houses full of antiques, that could have been real once ,is exciting. The story is fun and keeps you guessing. I have read the previous books and look forward to this one.

Another wonderful 68 rooms book with Ruthie and Jack. With a little confusion part near the end you have to be able to infer why it happened.. ( CLUE: Remember the lady who wants to buy the Clementine) In this book you travel back to meet Jacks ancester who is a pirate. Also who knew that one of Ruthies friends is related to Phobe?
