This is a fantastic! It's exciting and fun to read.

Interesting Plot and Format

I like this book for two main reasons. One being the plot, and the other being the way the story is being told. The book is about a kid who develops a homework machine, and shares it with three of his fellow peers. They begin using it everyday, and as expected, things start to get suspicious.
The way the story is told is very interesting. The four cheating kids have been caught, and they are taking turns telling the story from their point of view, which is being recorded on a tape in the police station. I would definitely recommend this book for young readers, as it is a very interesting read.
