Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator
by Josh Berk
What I really like about Josh Berk's writing is that he deals with real life "issues" and still manages to convey how funny everyday life can be... in the midst of a murder mystery and a family dealing with the grief of losing someone, I still found myself snorting as I read about Guy's daily activities.
In fact, I found myself snorting a lot as I read about Guy. I mean, this is a guy who fully admits to be incredibly lazy and loves to luxuriate in bubble baths...unless the Forensic Club barges in, that is! There were a lot of moments where Guy was just being your typical teenager. Playing video games, day dreaming about the girl he's crushing on...and then there were the moments when he was lifting fingerprints and stalking his half-brother in NYC.
Funny, poignant, and with a mystery that though it seemed to be readily apparent what was going on, ended up having some surprising twists!
