This book was awesome because: The kids in Cam and Eric’s school collected soda bottles and cans to make money for their school to buy skylights, to use instead of electric lights. Next, Cam, Eric, Ashanti and Michael won gold and green pins because they collected the most bottles. Their teacher, Mr. Day, opened a wooden box that they thought contained the money earned from recycling the soda bottles and cans, but instead, it was filled with bricks! Then Cam, Eric, Mr. Day, Dr. Prell, Officer Davis and Officer Oppen all tried to find the thief. Cam found many clues on the way, including the key to the mystery. Lastly, Officer Oppen and Officer Davis caught the thief and arrested him. The next week, new skylights were installed in Cam and Eric’s school!
