The Mysterious Edge of the Heroic World
by e.l. konigsburg
Amedeo Kaplan had a dream: he wanted to discover something. More specifically, he wanted to find something that had been lost; something that people didn't even know was lost, until it was found. When he and William Wilcox assist with the estate sale for Amedeo's neighbour, Mrs. Zender, a former opera star, they find a sketch by Modigliani. The story behind the sketch reveals a secret that dates back to Nazi Germany.
