Synopsis

Diary of a Social Detective Real-Life Tales of Mystery, Intrigue and Interpersonal Adventure by Jeffrey E. Jessum

Detective agencies come in many shapes and forms, but never before has there been a one-man social detective agency! Johnny Multony, himself transformed from a social misfit to a socially savvy kid, starts the first-ever social detective agency and is hired on by other students in his school for help with common interpersonal dilemmas such as cliques, dealing with disappointments, bullying, personal space, friends, body language, and much more. With titles such as Too Close for Comfort: The Case of Back-Away Bobby, Accidentally Funny: The Case of the Incidental Straightman, Summer's Bummer: The Case of the Huffy Girlfriends, Drowning in the Details: The Case of Monologuing Mona, etc., cleverly developed chapters allow readers to use their own social detective skills to solve the mysteries. Each chapter ends with a section called Cracking the Case, in which Johnny solves the social mystery and offers practical solutions to the social dilemmas. Foremost a detective/mystery story for readers ages eight and older, the book delivers insights, tools, and solutions in an engaging storyline that kids can relate to. Recommended not just for individual kids needing social skills tools, but on a broader basis for all kids wanting to read something interesting and fun.
