The book i read, The Writing on the Wall, is about a girl named Tess, who turns in a boy named Richard for stealing a test. There is a wall at their school which is illegally graffitied on. Richard starts whispering and writhing threats to Tess. Then Tess Finds a four fours code on the graffiti wall, and figures it's for her. After school, she hangs out with a boy named Damien. They go back to the wall, and figure out the code means arson. Tess buys some paint sticks and paints the word: WHERE, on the wall in code. The grafitiest answers back: 2-0-8. Tess figures out that it is the computer room in school. A wastebasket full of test papers was burned.After school, Tess went to a candy store. There, a girl named Lucia Shoplifts tree chocolate bars and a mint. Tess does not tell on her because she doesn't want to be a snitch. In the end, Tess finds out the class clown Marcus is behind the arson. She and Lucia work things out and become friends. I think it is a good book worth reading.
