Framed by Gordon Korman
Thanks to his earlier escapades Griffin has been labeled as a troublemaker by his new principal and the local newspaper reporter. When the principal discovers a Super Bowl ring hidden in a school cupboard he puts it on display in the trophy case. Before long the ring is gone and in its place is Griffin's retainer, making him the prime suspect. Griffin comes up with plan after plan to prove his innocence but each plan only gets him in deeper trouble until he is finally on house arrest. Luckily, he has a group of loyal friends who continue to try to find the ring and prove that Griffin isn't to blame. They just have to narrow down the pool of four suspects to find the right one.... This is the third book in a series but you don't have to read the others to understand the action in this one. When the thief is found it is definitely a surprise, if unbelievable.
