This story is about a kid who saw someone wearing his brother's jacket. He beat up the kid. The teacher saw them. She took them to the principal. The principal ask them questions. The kid gives back the jacket. They didn't get along. At the end they got along and become friends.

Read more to find out. Check it out from the library. This is the best book I ever read. I like this book because it has details, a mystery, and it is kind of a sad book. I like sad books and mystery books. I like this book because it is a chapter book. This book is like a book I read before because it was by the same author. This is how it is the same book I read because it had a mysteries in it, details, and chapters. I like the illustrations because it was made in black and white. I recommend this book to 4th graders that likes mysteries. You should read this book because it is good and interesting.
