The Project by Brian Falkner
Luke and Tommy believe that their English teacher has assigned them the most boring book in the universe to read so they decide to play a prank instead. When they are caught their principal make them a deal - prove that the book is the most boring in the world or face punishment. When they begin to investigate they find that a title named Leonardo's River has been described as so boring that the printer couldn't even keep awake while making it. The book has been missing for over a hundred years and an eccentric man has offered to pay millions of dollars for a copy of the book. While helping to clean out the basement of the local library during a flood, the boys see a copy of Leonardo's River and make plans to steal it. Unfortunately for them, they are not the only ones who are trying to get the book and the other people are willing to do anything to get it before Luke and Tommy. Like Falkner's other books, this one has lots of action and complicated schemes driving the bad guys. People who have enjoyed his other titles will also enjoy this one.
