The Big Splash

The Story: Matt Stevens is as tough as a steak from the school cafeteria. He’s a seventh-grade private eye, and he just did something he thought he’d never do: He accepted a job from Vincent “Vinny Biggs” Biggio, the kid behind every deal made at Franklin Middle School, from black market candy to forged hall passes. Matt had better watch his back as he tackles a case with more twists than a candy addict on a swivel chair.

full of crime!
A school
full of suspects!
Will he crack
the case . . .
Or be the next
