Daughters ages 10 to 13 and their mothers.
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg.
" Suburban Claudia Kincaid decides to run away-- with style-- to a place that is comfortable, beautiful, and, preferably elegant. She chooses the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Knowing her younger brother Jamie has money and can help her with a serious cash-flow problem, she invites him along. Once settled into the museum, they find themselves caught up in the mystery of an angel statue that is possibly an early work of the Renaissance master, Michelangelo, and therefore worth millions. Is it? Or isnt it? Claudia is determined to find out. Her quest leads her to Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, the remarkable old woman who sold the statue, and to some equally remarkable discoveries about herself."
