Framed!: A T.O.A.S.T. Mystery

Florian Bates is once again the new kid in town.  This time the Bates family has moved to Washington D.C.  Florian has been dreading the first day of school.  He's a little too smart, socially awkward, and short.  But maybe things in D.C. will be different.  He neighbor, Margaret, doesn't think he's weird!

In fact, she thinks T.O.A.S.T. is cool and wants to learn about it.  T.O.A.S.T. is the Theory of All Small Things.  It's a system Florian uses to examine the details to figure out the big picture each time he moves.

At first, they are just using T.O.A.S.T. as a game to figure out everything they can about random people and houses, but when millions of dollars of art is stolen from the museum where Florian's parents work, they may be the only ones who can solve the crime.

I really hope the subtitle on this book means there will be more in the series because this was a fun and engaging mystery.  My kids already love James Ponti's Dead City series, and I'm sure my mystery fans will love this one, too.  A great pick for middle grade mystery fans!
