Tough, self-reliant, and funny despite the odds, Theodora lives a life of poverty with her unstable mother. But with her grandfather’s dying words—“It’s under the egg”—Theo sets off on an adventure in pursuit of an old inheritance. To solve the mystery, she’ll have to allow her shell of independence to crack, and build a community of friends. Engaging and smart, this clever book is filled with fresh and exciting characters.
