Guy Langman can’t be bothered with much. But when his friend Anoop wants Guy to join the forensics club with him in the (possibly misguided) hopes of impressing some girls, Guy thinks why not.

They certainly aren’t expecting to find a real dead body on the simulated crime scene they’re assigned to collect evidence from. But after some girlish, undignified screaming, the two realize it is indeed a body. Which means they have stumbled across a real, dead murder victim.

Meanwhile, Guy has been looking into the past of his father, a larger-than-life character who recently passed away. He was much older than Guy’s mom, and had a whole past Guy never even knew about. Could his father’s past and the dead body be linked? Does Guy want to know? He’s going to need all his newfound forensics skills to find out.

    " Funny read. Really enjoy Guy's voice and the author's use of male teenage dialogue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julee | 1/26/2014

    " I chose not to purchase this selection. Sometimes, the material is not compatible with your elementary school library goals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne Dix | 1/20/2014

    " Was expecting something different. By the fifth chapter I was tired of the "boy" humor and what seemed to be a melodramatic plot. Summer is too short to stick with something I'm not enjoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 1/8/2014

    " Guy, the biggest smart aleck in school, signs up for the Forensics Club just to meet girls but soon is caught up in the middle of a real life murder mystery "

    " It goes quickly, and I sort of liked Guy. The best part were probably the immature puns. I found the writing style overall to be a bit choppy, and I think that's what prevented me from really enjoying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fuzzy | 12/15/2013

    " Guy Langman, Crime Scene Procrastinator is a young adult novel about a high schooler dealing with the recent death of his father and also trying to solve a murder. And it's funnier than I think that description might make it sound. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia Rielley | 12/13/2013

    " sweet funny and just good "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 A. Somers | 3/9/2013

    " This is very definitely fiction for "guys". I didn't appreciate the humor, but it wasn't written for readers like me. I can see some of my more reluctant readers totally getting the humor . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie | 3/4/2013

    " Funny! (if you enjoy teenage boy humor like I do) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Monica Edinger | 1/6/2013

    " Really enjoyed this one. Guy's voice is spot-on. (Would give it 3.5 if I could.) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dara | 10/11/2012

    " This book had a great premise and an interesting cast of characters. But the characters and dialogue were ultimately cartoonish. I wound up skimming the second half of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 3/22/2012

    " Decent audiobook. I really started to like the main character by the end. The kids in it were mostly believable (with a few exceptions). Not great, but not bad. I'll forget it in a few weeks. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juliana | 2/23/2012

    " Hilarious mystery of a NJ kid who joins a school Forensics squad and learns some life's lessons. Written for boys, with lots of bawdy boy humor. "
