Overview

The Skull by S. D. Tooley, Sandra Tooley

Three 13-year-olds dabble in "CSI" to reveal a town's long-kept secret. The first in the Remy and Roadkill Series. To help practice facial reconstruction, Remy purchases a monkey skull at an estate sale. Curious how the animal died, she enlists the aid of the school's outcast -- a teen with a strange fascination in dead animals. They team up with a runaway and together take a job in the mansion's library. But they have more than shelving books on their minds, because when Remy completed her reconstruction, she discovered that the skull wasn't from an animal. There are others who know the skull is human. And there is one person who will stop at nothing to keep its identity a secret.

Thirteen year old Remy Bauer is a highly intelligent teen who lives with her single mom and her paternal grandmother while her absentee dad travels the world gambling just like his late father did. Remy enjoys her lifestyle as the other females in the household encourage her to be all she can be. She especially enjoys forensics. --- At the Sycamore Mansion estate sale, Remy buys a monkey¿s skull with plans to construct the animal. She asks Rob ¿Roadkill¿ Haislett who photographs dead animals and orphaned Andy the runaway to help her learn how the animal died. As they become friends, they obtain summer work at Sycamore Mansion. This enables them to seek clues to the monkey¿s death. However, instead of learning that, Rob proves the skull belonged to a newborn human. The three young teens tries to learn what happened and when, but someone has other ideas as to what to do with three nosy thirteen years old youngsters --- This excellent young adult forensics mystery is fast-paced yet provides a discerning look at social issues facing tweeners such as peer pressure, youth gangs, and abandonment. The three amigos are unique eccentric protagonists who make this a fun amateur sleuth for readers of all ages. --- Harriet Klausner
