When a stink bomb at school provides Angus with a chance to talk to Ella Eckles, he claims to share her interest in reading facial expressions. He tells her he plans to become a crime-solving mentalist. When Ella’s treasured sketchbook is stolen, she asks Angus to find the thief. Angus knows he should confess that he’s not a mentalist, but the appeal of becoming Ella’s hero is far too strong. Angus decides to teach himself the arts of the mentalist and almost goes mental himself.
About the Author
K.L. Denman was born in Calgary, Alberta, and spent her childhood in a house one street away from the open prairie. When she was 11, her family moved to Delta, British Columbia, and she got to know life on the coast: tides, clam digging, rain gear, green grass year-round and enormous trees. It was there that Kim and her sisters got their first pony. She continued to live near Vancouver for many years while finishing school, attending college, and eventually getting married and starting a family. She always loved writing and when her teen children and their friends provided inspiration and re-kindled memories of this challenging passage, writing for teens became an irresistible venture. Today she lives on a small farm on British Columbia's Sunshine Coast with her family of people, two dogs, three cats, two horses and an elderly mule. When she's not writing or caring for critters, she's reading, trying to grow vegetables, taking pictures, or volunteering at therapeutic riding. More information about Kim is available on her website at www.kldenman.com.

The lie happened. But I've liked Ella for eons. Possilby as long as five months. In all that time, I never got up the nerve to talk to her.
