Hide my wit in a half-penny purse, and smile all day long?
Boils and plagues! Thirteen-year-old Susanna Shakespeare longs for something exciting to happen in her quiet, dusty village of Stratford, England.

Susanna refuses to turn into a good-for-nothing lackwit and begins keeping a journal, hoping something will deliver her from her dull life.
When her uncle gets into trouble with the Master of Revels, Susanna is whisked off to London to help. Suddenly her stage is set for adventure . . . and romance.
