Boy Books Part II. Just read The Morgue and Me by John C. Ford. Most Excellent. Well, mostly excellent. There are some parts that require you to suspend disbelief, but go for it. This is a fast-paced, edgy mystery that will keep you guessing until the end. The premise? The summer before he heads off to college, Christoper gets a job in the morgue. Creepy? Morbid? Or just dead boring? Christopher's job seems pretty uneventful until he witnesses something he shouldn't. With a Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew flair, he decides to solve the "case" with the help of a young (hot! & female!) news reporter named Tina. From the dynamic opening to the surprise ending, this book is the perfect choice for mystery/thriller fans.
