This amazing story takes place in your average, normal high school. The teachers are the same old boring ones, the parents still just as embarrassing. Seems normal doesn’t it? But it isn’t! When a new headmaster joins the school in the middle of the term, Jonny knows something’s up. The new headmaster’s weird looks and funny habits are very suspicious. And in the end that might just give his evil plan away. It all started with hamburgers, Jonny will need a big appetite to solve this case. Can Jonny dig up the dirt and save the school?
My favourite character in the book would have to be Miss Briars as she is so out there and strange that it makes the sad situations in the book go from zero to one hundred lightning fast. She’s so strange that she happens to have real swords and other helpful devices that means saving the world is a lot easier.
Sometimes digging up the dirt on your enemies and trying to gain allies means you’re going to have to take some risks, like when Jonny Jakes and his assistant Norris have to sneak into the girls’ bathroom to meet their comrade Justin Case to talk about facts on their headmaster.
This has been one of the best books I’ve ever read and I hope to read more of his books, I would definitely recommend this book to boys and girls, who are looking for a good book to read.
