Cover Up: Mystery at the Super Bowl Book Review

Cover Up: Mystery at the Super Bowl Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 12, 2007
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Kidzworld has a book review of Cover Up: Mystery at the Super Bowl. This was written by John Feinstein and is the last installment of his two previous books: Vanishing Act and the Last Shot.

Author: John Feinstein

Stevie Thomas and Susan Carol are sports writers. But for some reason, they always end up becoming detectives instead! Together they have solved crimes at the Final Four and the US Open. Can they work their magic again when a scandal erupts at the Super Bowl?

Book Basics

Cover Up is the final installment of author John Feinstein's trilogy of Stevie and Susan's adventures in solving sports mysteries. This time, the two 14 year-olds become co-anchors on a sports TV show for teenagers. Not long after, the network replaces Stevie with an older, better looking male anchor. Although Stevie and Susan are separated, they will meet back up at the Super Bowl - Stevie joins a local newspaper and will cover the game for them.

Another Scandal?

It seems like trouble follows Susan and Stevie everywhere they go. In the past two books, they survived a blackmail scandal at the Final Four and a kidnapping at the US Open. This time, they tackle a controversy at the world's most watched event - the Super Bowl. At a party, Susan finds out from a drunk team doctor that the entire offensive line for his Los Angeles Dreams have failed a drug test. If this is true, then the players would be suspended for the big game. To make matters worse, the owner of the Dreams is fully aware and is trying to cover it up.


Can They do it Again?

With everybody involved being silent, Stevie and Carol might be in over their heads proving this case. Who will believe them? What kind of proof do they have? It is going to take a lot of brains and creativity for the pair to bring justice for sports fans across the world.


The Bottom Line

Cover Up's got something for everybody. If you are a sports fan, you are going to love this book - author John Feinstein is a real life sports writer. If you have read the previous installments of this trilogy you will enjoy how Susan and Stevie go about solving this mystery. If you like romance, you get to read up and see if there is any love brewing between the two sports junkies. All in all, this is a fun read - it keeps you interested from start to finish!

    Hi Kristi, It sounds like the rules to your assignment are pretty flexible. Which is great when you need some creative wiggle room! My first suggestion, take something you're interested in, like a hobby or a future aspiration, (like you want to win a gold medal in the Olympics, or visit a distant country,) and try to imagine a story with that as the basis. So you can write about yourself and what it might be like, or you can come up with a fictional character. It doesn't have to be realistic! :) Another suggestion, think about a memory or an experience that really stands out in your mind. It can be a happy memory, or not so much. Whatever inspires you, write about that. You can stick true to the experience, or you can take some creative liberties and change it to make the story more interesting. Remember, you can always take inspiration from a short story someone else has written, just don't plagiarize! I hope this helps! I'd love to read whatever you come up with. :)
