Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-- Brad awakens with a fierce hangover after attending a drinking party with his best friend, Alden. His clouded memory tells him that something terrible has happened. Although Alden denies any wrongful occurrence, Brad begins to search for evidence that leads him toward a possible car accident and a missing man. He meets Ellen, who is searching for her missing father, and, voila, they discover that they are both on the same trail. It soon becomes clear that this trail leads to a coverup initiated by Alden's father, a less than scrupulous but very powerful judge. Despite the typically dark and oppressive mood, Ellen and Brad manage to find a little romance. Bennett, the master of short sentences, has suspensfully plotted another mystery that is sure to appeal to reluctant readers. This offering is all too easily resolved, however, and is not as satisfying as Skeleton Man (1986) and Dark Corridor (1988, both Watts) . All in all, it's an easy-to-read page turner.-- Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI

    COVER UP

    Book review outline
    Book title and author: cover up Jay Bennett
    Title of review:
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 3

    Introduction
    This story is about a man who wakes up with a terrible hangover and the feeling that some thing has gone wrong. This book should probably be read by young adults. The author purpose is to show what happens when you get drunk. I feel this book was not that bad but it can get confusing.

    Description and summary of main points
    This book is about a man named brad. He woke up with a really bad hangover and he can not remember every thing that happened last night. All he remembers is that his friend Alden gave him a ride home after the party and Alden had hit something that was not a tree and was living. Alden and his father a very powerful judge deny that anything had happened. But brad knows something happened when Ellen Hanson comes looking for her father. And Brad has to pick what to do tell the truth or lie which either way he could lose.

    Evaluation
    I like this book because it has a lot of mystery thing during the whole story. But I did not like this book because it was hard to follow. But other than that this book is good.

    Conclusion
    The main point the author is trying to get by is that if you drink bad things mite happen and you mite not know they happened.
