hey! it's Galley Girl, bringing you all things bookish. Today (tonight...) i actually have a different type of book. A crime book.
It's called Guy Langman: Crime Scene Procrastinator by Josh Berk.
I thought this novel was funny and it had a great voice to it. Although it is narrated by a Guy (literally! that's his name!), I feel like it a good novel for both boys and girls.
The book takes you a Guy's journey, starting from when his dad dies, to when he is almost out of high school. The mayhem all starts when Anoop, his best friend, convinces him to join the forensics club. Guy willingly joins- mostly doing it because his crush's name was on the list- and it goes from there. He makes new friends and then two different things happen: someone breaks into his house and that very day, at the fake crime scene the teacher makes up, he and Anoop find a body. A real, dead one. It is up to him to find the murderer and bring justice to himself and the boy that was murdered.
This book was really funny and I can't help but wonder what would have happened if his dad hadn't died and many other things, but I don't want to spoil the entire book for you.
