Audience: 5th Grade - 7th Grade
As usual, sixth-grader Hero's Shakespearean name prompts teasing in her new school, and her parents are clueless about her difficulties. Resigned to the constant teasing about her name being more suited to a dog, Hero concentrates instead on her newfound friendship with her eccentric, elderly next-door neighbor. Mrs. Roth tells Hero about the missing 'Murphy Diamond,' a precious jewel that supposedly disappeared from the house where Hero now lives. Mrs. Roth thinks it is still hidden somewhere in the house. The missing diamond and the 500-year-old necklace that goes with it reveal a mystery dating back to the time of William Shakespeare. So what is Shakespeare's secret, and who has the answer?
