It' s a hot, hot summer, and in the depths of the Toronto Transit Authority' s Lost and Found, 17-year-old Duncan is cataloging lost things and sifting through accumulated junk. And between Jacob, the cranky old man who runs the place, and the endless dusty boxes overflowing with stuff no one will ever claim, Duncan' s just about had enough. Then he finds a little leather book. It' s a diary filled with the dark and dirty secrets of a twisted mind, a serial killer stalking his prey in the subway. And Duncan can' t make himself stop reading. What would you do with a book like that? How far would you go to catch a madman? And what if time was running out. . . . "From the Hardcover edition."

A good hi-lo mystery with a slightly too-neat ending. - Goodreads
But the first third wandered from sub-plot to sub-plot. - Goodreads
A great premise but there could have been more. - Goodreads
I also found the ending as awkward. - Goodreads
Teens will enjoy the quick pace of this novel. - Goodreads
The ending, leaves you confused, very confused. - Goodreads

Review: Acceleration

User Review  - Nick Messina - Goodreads

i thought this book was real interesting. the idea of a kid finding a book at work and it turns out to be a killers journal seems like fate. i love books that have a plot like acceleration, one where things seem like they are on a set path and not so random after all. Read full review
