UNDER THE EGG by Laura Marx Fitzgerald. Dial, 2014.
When Theo's grandfather is dying he whispers to her, "under the egg." Theo does search under the egg and eventually discovers a painting hidden underneath another painting. It looks ancient and perhaps famous, but who can Theo trust to help her? Her mother is off in her own little world, and her grandfather was the one who took care of the family. How are they to survive? Enter a new neighbor, a friend to Theo who is determined to help. CHASING VERMEER is a logical connection for the book. Also consider adding in the Red Blazer Girl Mysteries.
