The Body In The

By: Taryn 9Q
"If the cops are wrong, then right now this guy is looking for his next victim."
I choose this particular quote because it represents what the book is about, and foreshadows what is going to happen if the kids don't find out who's the serial killer!
Main Characters
Ruby had just received a call from the detective telling her that the wrong man was in jail. The real killer is still out there. Ruby's mind was cloudy and she was very dizzy as she already was drugged by the killer. She was taken into the woods and doesn't realize that the person is the killer. When the killer takes her deep into the woods she is attacked.

Nick and Alexis realized she was missing and finds her phone on the edge of the woods and hits redial. The call went directly to the detective. Right then Nick sees a person taking Ruby into the woods, and realizes ruby was in trouble. Nick and Alexis run as fast as they can to find Ruby.

Nick arrives first and finds Ruby laying on the ground. Nick is then kicked and punched by the killer. When Alexis arrives she sees Ruby and Nick on the ground both bleeding. She assumes they are dead and quickly knocks out the killer.
Friendship, Trust
& Courage
The author gives the reader little detail about the characters at the beginning. Only that they are part of SAR and that Alexis uncovers a dead body in Forest Park.
Rising Action:
Alexis, Nick and Ruby attempt to find clues before the detectives arrive. They look around the area of the dead body to see if they find anything suspicious.

Throughout the story Alexis, Nick and Ruby discover clues and become friends.
Ruby and Nick are rushed to the hospital while Alexis explains to the cops what happened.

Alexis' mother started taking her medication again and life at home was more stable.

Nick realizes that he can stand up for himself and had much more confidence.

Ruby now helps the detectives solve other cases and has more respect from her parents.

All three stayed close friends.
Friendship & Trust:
Throughout the story, Alexis, Nick and Ruby become friends through SAR and learn to accept one another for who they are. They help each other discover their talents and stand up for each other.

Throughout the story, the Kids face things in life that they wouldn't normally face. Alexis pretends to be homeless to find her mother. Nick stands up for himself and punches somebody in the nose, and Ruby stands up to her parents and her parents learn to accept her.
So, in the end Alexis, Nick and Ruby become best friends.
The serial killer is put in jail.

I really enjoyed this book. It is an easy read.
This book describes what would happen in real life, and in detail tells how detectives find out who killed who and how.
