This book is about the life of a
couple of fourth graders. They have a pool party and a kid's money disappears. A lot of people assume that this kid at the party stole it and bought a 20/20 xbox with the money. They have a fake court to decide if the person who "stole" the money is guilty.
The setting takes place in a town like Princeton. The time is the present.
The character I am going to describe is Jessie. Jessie grows to be more responsible and more caring. Jessie learns that you should always try to make things better. She reminds me of myself because she always tries to make everything better in a bad situation.
There are not a lot of pictures in this book, but when you do see one it helps you
understand what is happening. The illustrations help me draw a bigger picture of the story in my head. The illustrations are mostly letters to someone or about something. There are no pictures of the characters or the scenery. This makes me use my imagination to picture the characters and the scenery. I like imagining what they look like rather than seeing them in an illustration.
I would recommend this book because it really draws you to want to read more of it. I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries. I liked how all through the book it kept you wondering how the story would end.
