The Cassandra Curse
Charity’s acts of kindness always end in disaster, but when one clown costume too many lands her in the Vice Principal’s office, she receives a mysterious note from a group called “The Cassandra Coalition,” asking her if she wants to be rid of the curse that seems to follow her.
The teens of the coalition claim to be cursed by a mirror world connected with their hometown known as Delphos. To make things worse, Delphos appears to be invading their world and turning people into zombies—either that, or someone switched all the coffee to decaf.
When one of their members goes missing, they’ll try to track her down, close the portal to their world, and find a way to end their curse, before the curse ends them.
Night at the Museum meets See You in the Cosmos

And they seem bent on killing all the inhabitants locked inside.
He and his friends in Troop 927 will have to find a way to use the scientific method to save the other Scouts in the museum and find a way to escape.
And it could be just his imagination, but maybe the scientific method may be able to help him with his troubles at home too.
