Acceleration - Graham McNamee

It's the summer before senior year for high school student Duncan.  He is miserable in the summer heat and working his boring job in the lost and found of the subway station in Toronto.  After rummaging through "lost" books at this job, he finds a leather bound diary of a potentially dangerous man.  He and his friend Vinny search for clues using the diary and together try and catch this Roach before he acts out his fantasy of killing someone.

This was a pretty good book.  Duncan is an interesting character trying to do the right thing.  I felt this was very true to life and depicted well on what a sixteen year old boy would do if in this situation.  It holds your attention throughout and I found myself hoping that he would catch Roach and hoping that he wouldn't get into trouble along the way.  Great ending! ... had my heart pounding.  It is a young adult book that I would recommend to any high schooler.
