Trevor has started his first job at Ashton's Fresh Marketplace, where someone has been tampering with the food. Cayenne has been sprinkled on cookies, garlic put in coffee, and plastic insects hidden in fruit displays to terrify customers. Trevor and his friends Nick and Robyn decide to find out who is out to destroy the store's reputation. Is it Mattie, the disgruntled ex-employee? Or perhaps the competition? Or is it Alex, their schoolmate who doesn't know when a joke has gone too far? Their snooping makes the kids themselves seem suspicious, and soon they realize they have to solve the mystery before Trevor gets fired for a crime he didn't commit.
Resource Links - December 1, 2014
"A fun addition to a quick read collection; even an enjoyable read-aloud."
Library Media Connection - March 1, 2014
"A quick whodunit for reluctant readers. Chapters are short and direct. There is enough action in the book to keep kids reading. The characters are believable and realistic, as is the plot...A good hi/lo choice for the older middle school age group."
Lower Columbia Review Group WLMA - October 1, 2013
"A story about friendship and team work...This was a very fast read but still had enjoyable characters and story line."
CM Magazine - September 27, 2013
"A finely crafted story, one in which readers, along with Trevor, will overcome obstacles to find that truth and justice prevail. The novel’s a page turner, and I highly recommended to both school and public libraries for their teen collections."
