BOOK NAME: The London Eye Mystery
AUTHOR: Siobhan Dowd
Welcome to August’s last book club meeting!
jindo2108, we agree with you! It would be disappointing to get this far and not have Kat and Ted solve the mystery. 2whitie, it’s true that a lot of mysteries have leads earlier in the story. Can anyone think why the author might wait so long to give readers a lead to follow?

Ted and Kat chase Christy, the mystery man who gave Salim the London Eye ticket, ut the trail seems to go cold. Later, back at the house, Ted starts reading The Tempest, a Shakespeare play that Salim had been in at school. The book makes it all click–Ted knows how Salim disappeared! He tells the detectives, and they prove Ted right by talking to Salim’s friend Marcus… but Salim is still missing. Kat and Ted start talking about where Salim might have gone, and they’re able to figure out where he is! Salim is reunited with his family. Hooray, we LOVE a happy ending!
Why do you think Christy didn’t admit to his part in the scheme?
Were you able to solve the mystery of how Salim disappeared before Ted?
Do you think Ted should be a meteorologist or a detective when he grows up?
