Under Copp's Hill

(The eighth book in the American Girl : History Mysteries series)
A novel by

An eleven-year-old immigrant must clear her name when things start disappearing from a Boston settlement house

Innocenza Moretti's parents died in a fire when she was two. Ever since, she's lived with her grandmother and seven lodgers in the flat downstairs from her aunt, uncle, and cousins in a crowded tenement in Boston's North End. Innie's world changes when she and her cousin Teresa become members of a settlement house where immigrant girls can learn more about American life. Best of all, they'll get to participate in a library club. At school, Innie has to share books with two or three other girls. Having her own books would be like eating Sunday dinner every day. The girls' first assignment at the settlement house is unpacking books that had to be moved because of the recent fire that tore through the city. But now valuable things are vanishing: a pottery mug. A silver teapot. Money. And the prime suspect is Innie!

With the help of Teresa and their new friend Matela Rosen, Innie searches for the real culprit. A secret tunnel under Copp's Hill Burying Ground leads them to a surprising thief.

This ebook includes a historical afterword.
