Overview
Myles Walsh is an anxious thirteen year old who has a talent for telling stories, often with a curious mixture of imagination and outlandish falsehoods that never fail to come together. When he discovers a dead body in a plastic bag hidden in the weeds near his house, he’s looking forward to playing in the most important hockey tournament of his life. The last thing he needs is the body to disappear before the police get there. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens. Myles and his friends must work together to uncover the dead man’s identity and the story behind his demise, or Myles may wind up the next victim. Little does Myles know that the dead man has a story of his own to tell.
Description
“It’s all my grammy’s fault. Ever since she tried to kill me. Actually, she tried to kill my whole family. All of us. My brother, my parents, a bunch of cousins, and several aunts and uncles. No one died, but now I smell like fish.” Myles Walsh is a thirteen year old who has a talent for telling crazy stories that always seem to land him in trouble. When he discovers a dead body in a plastic bag hidden in the weeds near his house, he’s about to play in the most important hockey game of his life. The last thing he needs is the body to disappear before the police get there. Of course, that’s exactly what happens. Where did the body disappear to? Myles and his friends must uncover the dead man’s identity and the story behind his death, or Myles can kiss his chance for hockey stardom goodbye. Little does Myles know that the dead man has a story of his own to tell. A story with the power to change lives.
