Shakespeare's Secret by Elise Broach

IndieBound Description: Starting sixth grade at a new school is never easy, especially when your name is Hero. Named after a character in a Shakespeare play, Hero isn’t at all interested in this literary connection. But when she’s told by an eccentric neighbor that there might be a million dollar diamond hidden in her new house and that it could reveal something about Shakespeare’s true identity, Hero is determined to live up to her name and uncover the mystery.

My Thoughts:Ohh, I love Elise Broach's books. I loved Masterpiece and I love this one too. I remember this came out when everyone was saying Chasing Vermeer was like a Da Vinci Code for kids. While I could see the similarities, I think Shakespeare's Secret is a better comparison!
