Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator by Josh Berk***

In Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator, there is a boring club. A club Guy signs up for. Forensics. Guy and his friend, Anoop, sign up for Forensics to do fingerprinting work or detective stuff. As they progress through the after school class, Guy decides to quit. Anoop forges a note to Guy from the girl he likes. Guy keeps going to Forensics, and he soons learns that Anoop forged the note. He stays in Forensics though. Then somebody breaks into his house and steals his deceased father's treasure. Guy manages to lift the fingerprints of the thief. Then on their Forensics "crime scene" event, Anoop and Guy find a body. Guy thinks it's too realistic. Then the face comes to him; it's the boy from the other team, the one that looks like him. Guy freaks out when Anoop helps him lift the prints. They're the same prints from his house. This takes the Forensics crew on a journey of true love, dead guys, and coins.

This book is pretty humorous to read. I think this is the book's saving aspect. It didn't have too much detail, but when it did, it was really good. I think that this is a very good book for older kids, or if you're just more mature than other kids. I think overall that this book is a very good read, and very humorous.
