Since I live in Calgary AB, “Tampered"s contents hit a resounding note as throughout the spring of 2010 fresh produce was tampered within numerous grocery stores. As a mother of two, I am happy to say that, while this book deals with a very serious topic, Michele Bossley made it not only an enjoyable read but an exciting one too! I got caught up in the adventure and very much appreciated the method in which the mystery was solved.
Readers are introduced to Trevor, the main character, who has just landed his first job at Ashtons’ Fresh Marketplace.
With the help of his friends Nick and Robyn, Trevor tries to figure out who is messing with the food. Could it be Mattie fired in front of Trevor on his first shift for being continuously late? Or could it be his classmate Alex who loves playing practical jokes?
Readers, drawn into Trevor’s world as he seeks to unravel the wrongdoings, will have to read the book to find out to whom Trevor said the following:
And the best part is that readers, after sitting on the edge of their seats wondering how everything is going to turn out; will still be left with a sense that’s all right with the world.
Tampered is a finely crafted story, one in which readers, along with Trevor, will overcome obstacles to find that truth and justice prevail. The novel’s a page turner, and I highly recommended to both school and public libraries for their teen collections.
