Caught in the Act

128 pages
Dylan and his friends attract the attention of the police when a summer bonfire gets out of control. Dylan almost loses a job opportunity at a local inn because of his antics, but he is saved by the lies of Heather, an employee of the inn. When he is caught on camera stealing towels from a summer cottage after a skinny-dipping prank, Dylan and his friends become suspects in a number of cottage robberies. Dylan learns everything he can about the robberies, with the hope of clearing his name, and finds himself in more than one sticky situation in the process.

“I’ll meet you at the site. We’re lighting it at three o’clock sharp,” Cory told me. “Sweet,” I said. It was the same time school let out every day. “Startof another awesome summer! See ya over there, Cory.” I tried not to hear my mom’s voice saying,Dylan, maybe it’s time for you to think about getting a job, to start paying for your own stuff and helping out around here a little bit. I felt like sticking my îngers in my ears whenever she brought it up, but that would only make her mad.

I had my hand on the doorknob. I turned it. I thought I was in the clear. Then I heard her clear her throat from where she was sitting on the sofa, watching her favorite program, The Weather Channel, and knitting socksas usual. “Where you off to with that back-pack, Dylan? I thought school was done already. Yesterday, wasn’t it?” I swear she can see in every direction at the same time. “Yep,” I said, without looking at her. But I could practically
