Frankweiler meets Chasing Vermeer in this clever middle grade debutWhen Theodora Tenpenny spills a bottle of rubbing alcohol on her late grandfather’s painting, she discovers what seems to be an old Renaissance masterpiece underneath. That’s great news for Theo, who’s struggling to hang onto her family’s two-hundred-year-old townhouse and support her unstable mother on her grandfather’s legacy of $463. There’s just one problem: Theo’s grandfather was a security guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and she worries the painting may be stolen.With the help of some unusual new friends, Theos search for answers takes her all around Manhattan, and introduces her to a side of the city—and her grandfather—that she never knew. To solve the mystery, shell have to abandon her hard-won self-reliance and build a community, one serendipitous friendship at a time.Keď trinásťročná Theodora Tenpennyová vyleje na obraz svojho nebohého starého otca fľašku s liehom, pod vrchným náterom objaví druhý obraz, ktorý pripomína diela renesančných majstrov. V prvej chvíli ju zaplaví radosť, pretože peniaze zaň by jej umožnili udržať si dvestoročný rodinný dom a postarať sa o svoju chorú mamu. Vzápätí sa jej však zmocnia obavy. Čo ak starý otec, ktorý pracoval ako strážnik v Metropolitnom múzeu, obraz ukradol?Ak chce Theo rozlúštiť záhadu, bude sa musieť prestať spoliehať len na seba. S pomocou nových a veľmi nezvyčajných priateľov precestuje celý Manhattan a odhalí nepoznanú stránku mesta aj starého otca.
