Tom is a normal twelve-year-old boy who is a leader and master salesman. He has a paper route and persuades his friends, Jimmy and Matt, to help him deliver the news. Early one morning when they are delivering papers, they see a suspicious tow truck backing up to an expensive car. When the driver sees Tom, Matt and Jimmy, they take off. Tom, who likes to read the newspaper when folding them, remembers a story about car thefts in the area. When Tom sees the tow truck drivers on more than one occasion, he becomes very wary. He begins to ask questions around town and schedules a stake-out where he believes the car thieves might strike next. Danger lurks around the corner when one of the thieves spots Tom and his friends. Will the boys solve the mystery before it's too late?
Max Elliot Anderson grew up as a reluctant reader. Later in life, he determined that books should be full of action and adventure to keep readers interested. The Tweener Press Adventure Series was developed to do just that. His books take place in different settings, with different characters, and different and exciting adventures. The Newspaper Caper adventure is another great addition to Anderson's previous stories. There are many twists and turns in the plot, and a few surprises at the end. These books are just like potato chips: you can't just read one. -- Jessica Loughner, Christian Book Previews.com
