Are you good at telling when someone is lying? A "tell" is something a person may do which could indicate they aren't telling the truth. This may be a facial expression, a body movement or another kind of habit. Tells become second nature when gambling or playing cards. This can also be a good skill to have throughout life. After the death of David's gambling stepfather, David must learn who is telling the truth about how much they know. Meanwhile, the police believe David knows a lot more than he is volunteering. Who killed Phil and why? I would recommend the book to someone who likes to read mystery novels. This book is very fast-paced and the vocabulary is not that difficult. Each chapter ends on a suspenseful note, making you want to continue reading. The ending didn't give enough information and left so many questions unanswered. What I did like about the book was that the author kept the reader constantly questioning who the possible killer could be.

Where did you get the gun? Where did you hide it after you murdered him? How did you even do it?

These are all questions that Detective Antonelli asked David, the main character of TELL, after his stepfather, Phil, was shot and killed.

All signs pointed to David when the police found out that he was only a block away from the crime scene. Not to mention that he was there with Phil just moments before his stepfather's death. David has no way of talking himself out of this one, because no one else was there when Phil was shot.

David stretches the truth and ends up making it harder to claim himself innocent. He has nowhere else to turn but the TRUTH. In the end, which will he choose--juvenile hall, or telling what really happened?

Ms. McClintock tells the tale of an amazingly thrilling murder mystery in this beautifully-written book. She can definitely keep the reader attached and interested. A great read!
