Claudia Kincaid, a sixth grader along with her younger brother, Jamie (nickname for James). Claudia is oldest of four children; Kevin, he was the brat and spoiled, and one brother name I think Steve. Claudia had decided that she must run away from home due to Claudia not getting any appreciation by her family. She ended up picked Jamie to go with her. They stayed in a museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art for one week. And Claudia and Jamie ended up finding the clues of the famous statue of Angel which was created by one artist, Michelangelo. And that ended up leading Claudia and Jamie to go and visit one lady, Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. I would definitely recommend this book! - Happy Reading!
