Favorite Characters Eric Shelton, Cam Jansen
Description of Characters Eric is an intelligent and nice young boy.
Cam is a nice little girl of about 7 or 8 years old.
Setting Time: First morning of spring vacation.
Place: Mr. Parker's jewelry.
Plot Exposition: Cam and Eric are playing the memory game and Cam is always winning since her memory is perfect. She records things just like a camera does, that's why people called her Cam even though her real name was Jennifer.
Rising Point: The alarm bell rang at Mr. Parker's jewelry. A man went out of the jewelry running and the police were chasing him until they caught him. But they soon released him because he said he was innocent.
Climax: Cam and Eric followed the man until he met the couple that robbed the jewelry. Eric went to call the police but the thieves caught Cam. 
Resolution/Falling Point: The policemen came, they rescued Cam and caught the 3 thieves.
Favorite Part My favorite part is when the police caught the man. He was the thief but he told the police it was someone else.
Favorite Expression - p. 26: "The man had a mustache that curled up at the ends."
- p. 31: "They brushed past a woman carrying a few large packages."
Recommendation I recommend this book to all the students of my age because it is very funny.
