Framed, by Gordon Kormon, is the third book in a series about Griffin Bing and his friends. The book, which follows Swindle and Zoobreak, is due in bookstores on September 1. The Scholastic Kids Press Corps received an advance copy to review.

Just like the title suggests, Griffin is framed for something he didn't do. Known as The Man With a Plan by his football teammates, Griffin ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time—and so does his retainer!

Someone has stolen a Super Bowl ring from the school's display case. Left in its place is Griffin's mouthpiece. He ends up under house arrest with an electronic bracelet to track his whereabouts.

Griffin knows he's innocent, but he has no way to prove it. To find out what happens, you'll have to read the book for yourself. Just know that this time, The Man With a Plan doesn't seem to have one!

I give this book a 10. It is a very interesting and funny story, with an intense plot that will keep you reading. Some parts will even make you angry, as you relate to the injustices that Griffin suffers. I hope you check it out for yourself. You'll find it a worth while read.

    Cyberia #3

    Cyberia #3

    by Chris Lynch

    Zane and his animal comrades have foiled Dr. Gristle's terrible plots twice—he can't talk to animals, and he can't get at the heart of what makes them wild. Zane can talk to them. He can understand them. He almost is one. Almost.

    Zane keeps getting in Dr. Gristle's way though—and he's being sent as far out of the way as Gristle can get him. In fact, he's being sent right into the middle of a new plot of the bad doctor's—and in his new, utterly foreign surroundings, he's entirely too human.

    Just what has Gristle done to make these new animals so angry? Can't they see that Zane is their Friend?

    In order to get home, Zane must figure out a way to stop Gristle's new plan and make some new friends before he becomes animal feed—or worse. It's time to defeat the evil Dr. Gristle once and for all!

    In the not-too-distant future, a boy must be all animals' best friend, in a final laugh-out-loud adventure sure to please middle-grade readers with all types of pets.
