Grooves: A Kind of Mystery by Kevin Brockmeier

Grooves: A Kind of MysteryI gave it a rating of three out of five. Dwayne Ruggles discovers a mystery in the grooves of his blue jeans and a potato chip. You'll need to read the book to find out how. Dwayne receives a message from someone saying, "Please. You must help us. He's stealing the light from our eyes." Dwayne and his friend, Kevin, decide to investigate this clue, and it leads them to the factories of a local millionaire. They're almost caught trespassing several times, but their luck may run out.

The conflict is not overly dramatic, but the plot is entertaining. Dwayne and Kevin are worried about getting into trouble with their parents, but their third partner, Emily, has a mother who encourages her to cause problems for companies that harm nature. Dwayne's first-period teacher is supercool, while his physical education teacher doesn't know the names for half the class. The boys skip school for the first time to investigate, while Emily takes a day off from school every Wednesday. Again, this is not great literature, but it's fun to read.
