Mojo by Tim Tharp***

Mojo is about Dylan, a boy who works on the news team for his school. When he jumps into a dumpster after being chased by thugs, he finds a dead body,and now he knows he's in trouble. The dead boy is Hector Maldonado, a semi-popular boy in Dylan's school. Then one of the girls in the North side of the town goes missing, and Dylan jumps on the chance for an amazing story. He finds a blue running shoe, the girl's shoe, and the police immediately think Dylan is the person who took Ashton. But he still thinks that he can find her captor. When the police find Ashton tied to a pipe with a black eye, she gives the police the name of a boy who really didn't have anything to do with her capture. This case leads Dylan and his friends through so many twists and turns that the outcome could almost kill them.

This book was good, but not great. I feel that some kids who like mysteries will love the book, while some would hate it. It's up to you to make the decision to read this book. Take this case, if you dare.
