Review: Griff Carver, Hallway Patrol (Krieg)

Title: Griff Carver, Hallway Patrol
Author: Krieg
Genre: Fiction, Humor, Middle School, Mystery
Pages: 272
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Griff Carver is the new kid in school, and the newest recruit to the school's safety patrol.  He may be new to school, but he is a veteran at safety patrol and is determined to rid the "mean streets" (school hallways) of crime. 

Griff is a character straight out of a television crime drama.  With so many cop shows on TV, and with new ones scheduled to debut in the fall (think Hawaii 5-0), this book has a ready-made group of fans.  But the best part about this book is Griff.  He is such a typical 7th Grade boy, and fans of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" will enjoy this book.  This is a hilarious, smart-aleck mystery (Griff uncovers counterfeit hall passes for goodness sake).  Just plain funny!  Word of warning: I wouldn't recommend talking to Ms. Olsen (or any other principal) like Griff talks to his!
