When an outbreak of the deadly Black Plague closes the Globe Theatre, William Shakespeare's acting troupe sets off on a tour of England. Widge, the orphan-turned-actor, knows that he'll be useful on the trip. Not only does he love the stage, but his knack for a unique shorthand has proven him one of the most valuable apprentices in the troupe. But then a mysterious man appears, claiming to know a secret from Widge's past-a secret that may forever force him from the theatre he loves.

"An exciting, well-written tale that is sure to leave [readers] clamoring for more." (School Library Journal, starred review)

I liked the first one in the series, and alhtough this has a great premise, I found myself getting bored with it. I'm afraid I skipped ahead a bit, feeling a bit mired in the details, but then again, I like a lot of action and dialogue. I'm trying to read some "good" kids' books for my nine year old daughter, and I can't imagine kids staying interested long enough to finish it. Just my opinion.
