Description


Time Out is a mystery, in which a bright high school boy named Sam helps investigate curious inconsistencies in his school's computer system. Sam befriends a new student, Jim. At a basketball game, they discover that the shot timer allows more time to their school's home team that to the visiting team, though it does not indicate a difference in the countdown. Sam asks his computer science teacher for help with this puzzle, and the teacher gives him administrative access to the school-wide system so that Sam can investigate it from home. Meanwhile, smaller mysteries seem to present themselves: the buses seem to arrive late to bring the students home, and students feel rushed in their classes. Through Sam's relentless investigative work he eliminates suspects and finally helps the FBI nail the evil doer.
