New! The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin

I heard about this book on another book blog, Stop, Drop and Read, and thought it sounded very fun. I think I might just have to read it.

The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin by Josh Berk

About: Will Halpin is the new kid at school. This is a tough situation even in the best of circumstances, but Will is also deaf, and his self-image isn’t great (he compares his body to a “sedentary manatee”). Having left a school for the deaf, Will survives at his first public school with a lot of lip-reading, texting, and the friendship of another social outcast, Devon Smiley. Together, the two students become a duo of misfit Hardy Boys who investigate the death of a classmate while on a field trip to the Happy Memory Coal Mine.
