Book Synopsis: When 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, Theo's 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, she'll have to abandon her hard-won self-reliance and build a community, one serendipitous friendship at a time.About the Author:…

Stacking the Shelves (1)

Hey everyone! Sorry for the long break, high school has really taken a toll on my reading life! From now on I'm going to try to make some time to read more because I really do miss it. So since I'm trying to get back at it, let's get into this week's Stacking the Shelves!

1) The Fault In Our Stars by John Green- Yeah, I know I'm probably the only person on the face of this planet that hasn't read this book yet but that's going to change! 

2) Looking for Alaska by John Green- I'm trying to catch up on this John Green trend of books...I know I'm a disappointment.
