Lewman, David. The Case of the Plagued Play. (Club CSI, # 6) Simon Spotlight, 2013. $15.99. ISBN 978-1-4424-7261-7. 157 pages. Ages 8-12. P8Q6
What is going on behind the scenes of the school play rehearsals? Props are missing. Ultimately, the play is delayed because of damage to the set with paint that spoils the play denouement. The play was written by an eighth grade student. Is the culprit a jealous classmate? Can Club CSI get to the bottom of this? Will the play go on? The use of investigation and forensic science helps to put the pieces together. This book did not stay on my shelf for long.
