The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding
The Diamond of Drury Lane intertwines mystery, action and humor. It is the story of Cat Royal, an orphan who lives in a theater in 1700s London, England. When she overhears the owner of the theater talking about a diamond hidden in the theater, Cat's curiosity is sparked, as well as the curiosity of some local gangs. The story is told through the eyes of Cat, with her witty humor scattered throughout the book.
This is a really good book. I found it interesting and funny. You get to learn a little bit about what life might be like in the 1700s in London as well.
