Better Nate Than Ever meets The Parker Inheritance in this heartwarming mystery about finding your people and accepting others as they are.
Twelve-year-old Maren is sure theatre camp isn’t for her. Theatre camp is for loud, confident, artsy people – people like her older sister, Hadley, who is the last person Maren wants to think about, or her new cinema-obsessed, nonbinary bunkmate, Theo. But when a prank goes wrong, Maren gets drawn into the hunt for a diamond ring that, legend has it, was buried somewhere on the grounds by the camp’s namesake, Charlotte “Charlie” Goodman.
The key to finding the ring lies in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and soon Maren, Theo, and their new friends Graham and Sal are running all over the theater, through lighting booths and orchestra pits and costume storages, discovering more clues and dodging camp counselors. But they’re not the only ones searching for the ring, and with dire circumstances threatening to close the camp forever, they're running out of time.
