There was this teacher, see, who everyone hated because he actually, like, made you earn your grades. So like, these four kids decided to pull this prank on this teacher to get back at him for all the crap he put them through. It was a great idea, see, they were going to blindfold him and tie him up so that he would think he was being kidnapped, but like, they would just scare him, then let him go. Only they didn’t know Mr. Griffin had a weak heart. And that he took medication for it. So like, they were really screwed when Mr. Griffin kind of, well, died. Now four friends have a terrible secret and a body to hide. Ever tried to keep a secret in high school? It’s pretty much impossible, and pretty soon, somebody’s going to find out about Mr. Griffin. This nail biter was written before most of you reading this were born. But it still has the power to make your heart pound and bring your most hated teacher a bright, shiny apple.

WHOA! This soundz really suspensful
But is it worth reading?
cuz i’ve read a book like this before
It had a really good summary
but the book itself, sucked
So is this book actually GOOD?
Yes! It’s a classic and one I still really enjoy. Lois Duncan was penning suspenseful short stories long before Christopher Pike and R.L. Stine and her writing is much better, IMHO.
Personally, I didn’t think this book was too great. At some parts, it was terribly boring, and at other parts it was fun. I mean, the plot itself is good, and so is the story, it’s just that when you’re reading it, you’re wondering when is it going to get exciting? Some people might enjoy it, while others might not? I think I didn’t enjoy it because I don’t really like Loise Duncan’s writing. Yes, I have read a few of her other books and they didn’t really have an appealing taste to me. I do like mystery, and suspense books, but this just didn’t make my day.
