Who Killed Mr. Chippendale?
In this novel in verse, the murder of Mr. Chippendale, a high school english teacher is explored through different viewpoints of students and other people that knew him. Every poem is a new clue to who killed Mr.Chippendale and some *hint hint* red herrings are thrown in. The end is very interesting.
This is a nice, short read. Some parts are quite humorous. I thought it was a nice read for getting people interested in novels in verse. Even if you don't like poetry, just try this. It's not bad at all.
