This is a great mystery series for middle and high schoolers. And frankly, I have also enjoyed it. The author is a teacher who has vast experience with middle school and high school, so he is spot on when it comes to exactly knowing what this reader will enjoy.
The series involves four friends who solve mysteries or issues they see in their community. As the series continues, the friends get a reputation for their ability to work out and solve problems. In this book, they deal with a current event issue of college admittance scams. This is a large topic that was handled well and clearly.
Get it for your kiddos, but you read it yourself too!
Gather information, report back to me, and do nothing illegal.
With these instructions received under the cover of darkness and a list of names, Marcus and Alissa launch an investigation into their own classmates.
Friendship and investigative skills will be put to the test as these teen detectives take on their most challenging case yet. But when their investigation is suddenly shut down without explanation, the teens have already gathered too many clues to just leave it alone. As powerful forces work against them at every turn they take, will they be able to rise above the challenge?
What begins as a quick peek into high school drama, quickly turns dark and dangerous for the pair as they pursue answers to the questions someone doesn’t want answered.
