“Wait!” Justin’s voice was urgent. “What’s he doing? He’s got five of those boxes in this truck. Something smells weird about this whole thing,” Justin continued. “I don’t think it’s a science project.”

Book: Processing The Computer Conspiracy by Matt Tullos, Broadman & Holman Publishers, 1998
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Boy and Girls 15-18
Subjects: Crime, Dating relationships, Friendships, Bullying, Evangelism
Summary: Clipper is ecstatic. He took the janitor from school to a Christian concert and the man got saved! Everyone else is excited too. How awesome it is to see this man who some consider dumb or retarded, so passionate about his new faith and so thankful for the kids he gets to serve by cleaning up after every day. But all of a sudden he stops talking to everyone, avoiding people, and sitting in corners crying. Something strange is going on and Kandi thinks it’s connected to the break-in at school and the stolen computers.
Notes: This book has an aspect of great beauty as it talks about the humble service of the janitor and how much his new faith means to him. He is portrayed as being slightly mentally handicapped, but his heart is huge. He has always enjoyed serving the kids as a school janitor and now as a believer, his love for them is even bigger. It also contains a neat picture of characters turning to God when times get tough. When it looks like the bullies will win, the faithful turn to God and plead for His help and strength. The other books in this series are typical realistic fiction, but this one, book 2of the Summit High Series goes beyond the ordinary to really show role model characters who are making right choices or at least coming around by the end.
Recommendation Scale: 4.5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Philippians 4:6-7 – Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
