Mojo

By: Tim Tharp

BOOK TALK

To junior Dylan Jones, finding classmate Hector Maldonado’s body in a dumpster seems to be the answer to his prayers. At first he’s the talk of the school, and it certainly gives him something to write about for the school newspaper. But soon his nerdy overweight image is back and his new nickname, Body Bag, doesn’t help. When a rich high school girl named Audrey disappears, Dylan and his best friend decide finding her will be his ticket back to popularity. But limos, guns and underground clubs are more than they bargain for. The hunt for Audrey in the seedy rich parts of town might not be worth getting his Mojo back.
