(2000)
(The sixth book in the American Girl : History Mysteries series)
A novel by

 
A young girl's life changes forever when she investigates a mystery with the help of writers, artists, and musicians in 1920s Harlem

Bessie Coulter has no idea why her father spirits her and her brother, Eddie, away from their home in Burlington, North Carolina, in the middle of the night, leaving their sick mother behind. But from the moment she steps off the train at Grand Central Station, she's captivated by this teeming, colorful city that's both scary and exciting.

Although Harlem is a thrilling place, Bessie misses her mother and can't get used to living with her two aunts. She's lonely and homesick, especially when her father begins going out with a beautiful, well-dressed woman. Desperate to find out what's going on, Bessie launches an investigation that takes Eddie and her into a world of artists, jazz musicians, and writers, in search of a strange place called the Dark Tower. With the help of their next-door neighbor Lillian Moore and a Caribbean hoodoo woman named Miss Flo, Bessie is determined to uncover the mystery and get her family back together.

This ebook includes a historical afterword.
