About the book:
“Miles Murphy is known for one thing and only one thing: pranks.
“He’s the best prankster his school has ever seen. So when he is forced to move to the boring Yawnee Valley (also known for one and only one thing: cows), he assumes that he will be the best prankster at his new school too. There is a problem. The school already has a prankster – and he’s good. Really good.
“From bestselling authors Mac Barnett (” Extra Yarn “,” Sam and Dave Dig a Hole “and Jory John (” Penguin Problems “,” The Bad Seed “) comes this deviously funny new series about fitting, leaving a mark and Find a friend where you least expect him. Oh, and cows. “

About the book:
“Pay close attention and you could solve this. Five Bayview High students were arrested on Monday afternoon. Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule. Addy, the beauty, is the perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on parole for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon the Outcast is the creator of Bayview High’s infamous gossip app.
“Only, Simon never makes it out of this classroom. Before the end of his detention, Simon will be dead. And according to investigators, his death was not an accident. He died on Monday. But on Tuesday he had planned to post juicy revelations about all four of his high-profile classmates, making all four of them suspects of his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who is still at large? Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them. “
