Clay would much rather work as a lifeguard at the beach than at Safari Splash, the new water park in town.

Clay is certain the summer will drag along, despite his position at the Boa, the park's fastest slide. The summer job starts to get interesting when he learns that someone has been wandering the park in a lynx costume, scaring the staff. When forty thousand dollars is stolen from the till, and his friends are under suspicion for the theft, boring is starting to look good. But Clay is certain that the mask and the thefts are connected, and he's determined to solve the crime.

This short novel is a high-interest, low-reading level book for middle-grade readers who are building reading skills, want a quick read or say they don’t like to read!

"A delightful mystery that offers readers sympathetic characters that are relatable and realistic...This story will thrill its readers with its twists and unexpected ending."
