In "Shakespeare's Secret" by Elise Broach, Hero Netherfield has moved once again and must once again start a new school. Not so easy to do with such an unusual name. She doesn't really care that she's been named for a character in the play, "Much Ado About Nothing" by Shakespeare. But she finds out that history can be a lot more interesting than she thought. After talking to her neighbor, elderly Mrs. Roth, Hero discovers that she is living in the "Murphy Diamond" house--the house where a 17 karat diamond has gone missing and is believed to still be hidden there. What's more, the necklace that it came from might have ties to the "real" Shakespeare--a man who might have been Queen Elizabeth I's son. As Hero and her new friend Danny (only the most popular boy in school) search for the diamond, Hero discovers yet another mystery--this time one in the present day. To find out what it is, read "Shakespeare's Secret."
