Framed! by James Ponti
What the book’s about: Twelve-year-old Florian Bates has developed a system for using small things to solve life’s little problems. His Theory of All Small Things is extremely effective for figuring out where to get the best egg rolls and finding the best seat on the first day of school, but can Florian also use it to bring a ring of notorious art thieves to justice?
What The Ten-Year-Old learned from reading this book: “It’s really funny and a little crazy. It’s about a 12-year-old FBI cop who uses TOAST to solve crimes. TOAST is a Theory of All Small Things. Small things tie in to form a big picture and you can use the details to solve the big picture. I’ve started using TOAST myself. I figured out the lady at the dry cleaning place was married and I didn’t even ask her. Everyone can use TOAST to get a deeper understanding of the place that they are in.”
