Shakespeare's Secret Reviews

"(More) evidence-driven than Blue Balliett's "Chasing Vermeer," this agreeable history-mystery may have even more appeal to budding sleuths."-"Kirkus Reviews," Starred Review "Elise Broach's debut mystery is a gem. An engrossing mystery that touches several historical elements."-"School Library Journal""Middle school girls will love the suspense and identify with the characters' personal decisions, reflecting Shakespeare's universal themes such as loyalty, the public versus the private self, integrity, true love, and humor's dark side."-"Voices of Youth Advocates""Sophisticated readers, particularly fans of Blue Balliett's "Chasing Vermeer," will appreciate the true emotions, the rich language, and the revelations of many-layered mysteries that tie the past to the present."-"Booklist""Terrific hero, terrific book. I loved it."-Patricia Reilly Gi
