The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd

The London Eye MysteryTed & Kat’s cousin, Salim, and Salim’s mother come for a short family visit before moving to New York City. The family all go together to ride the London Eye which is a huge ferris wheel in London.  Because of the wait, Salim ends up riding by himself and he never comes off of the pod. The police are called in but have no leads. Kat feels responsible and decides that by using her brother’s amazing brain, they should be able to figure out what happened to Salim. Ted who has Asperger’s syndrome, has a great memory for details and a great interest in science.  He comes up with 9 theories to account for his cousin’s disappearance and the plot is off and running. Interesting characters and a good plot make this a great read. Recommended for boys and girls 5th-8th grade especially those who like mysteries or science.
