This book takes place at an American History Museum. Wilson, a ten year old boy whose mom works at the museum, and his three friends named Amal, Raining, and Clementine meet up at the museum. Wilson wants to show his friends the new flag room at the museum. They enter the room and see that someone had used a black marker to make graffiti on one of the flags. The kids tell one of the security guards what had happened. He gets out a ladder and takes a look for himself and is shocked at what he sees. The kids venture off into a different part of the museum. They soon discover more graffiti work throughout various places around the museum. One of the new security guards thinks they did it and brings them to the Head of the Security. She knows the kids and knows that they would not do this. She yells at the new security guard defending the kids. She also asks the kids to find and make friends with the new security guards son. He’s not any nicer than his dad and both are raciest and prejudice. This doesn’t stop the kids from solving the mystery of the vandal. This is a great read for kids who are around ages eight to thirteen. It’s a fun and suspenseful book, but it also makes a very important point about treating everyone fairly and without prejudice. It’s important for people to not go around judging others by how they look or where they are from or stuff like that. This is a great book for kids to read with a parent or teacher so they can better understand these things. Review by Hayden S., age 8, SE Michigan Mensa
