The Capybara Conspiracy
Loved this - so clever and funny.
Olivia and her friend Rey are tired of being overlooked by the sports crazy kids and administration at school. They decide to kidnap the school mascot, a Capybara named Cappy, to draw attention to their cause. But, although a boy named Pablo says he will help them he ends up having an ulterior motive. And then there is Brie who wants to save Cappy because she is an animal rights activist. Lots of fun to read.
I also liked that it is written as a script. One of the Common Core standards talks about reading scripts but it is very rare for students to be exposed to it. Loved.
