Cover-Up: Mystery at the Super Bowl

Cover-Up: Mystery at the Super Bowl

YA Fiction
Grades 5 and up

In the third installment of Susan Carole and Stevie’s life as teenage journalists, Cover-Up takes them to report at the Super Bowl. Life has been hectic for the two now fourteen year olds since their last adventure at the US Open. They have been made TV stars as co-hosts of a kids sports show on USTV. Given their background with getting into trouble time will only tell what they will uncover next time.

While the ideal of two kids once again happening upon the biggest scandal is a bit tiresome, this is still a fast paced read. This would be a great read for the reluctant readers including girls with Susan Carole as a strong female role in a normally male driven profession. Unlike the past, the two are not placed in danger as they think ahead to keep themselves out of hot water.
