On the way to the first day of fifth grade, Cam and Eric's school bus is stopped in a traffic tie-up caused by a car crash a few blocks away from school. Later, their teacher is taken away by the police, accused of leaving the scene of the accident. Using her photographic memory, Cam is able to establish that Ms. Benson was not driving her car at the time of the accident. Her memory also points toward the clue that identifies the thief, who was driving. Neither of the "clues" provided by Cam could have been overlooked by even the densest police inquiry. It also strains credulity that the officers would confront a teacher in front of her class and that the principal would then leave the children unattended while she arranged for a sub.-Lisa Smith, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.

    Good books;bad samples

    I have not read this book but i have read many other ones. DO NOT GET THE SAMPLES. You can not see any of the story because it is so short. I think it is that way for all kid books.
