To Right the Wrongs
by Sheryl Scarborough


Sheryl Scarborough continues the adventures of teen amateur sleuth and aspiring forensic scientist Erin Blake in To Right the Wrongs, the sequel to To Catch a Killer.

Barely three weeks after catching the killer of Erin's mother and their biology teacher, Erin and her crew are back, up to their elbows in forensics projects. But this time it's with the full approval of their parents.

With Uncle Victor at the helm, Erin and her best friends, Spam and Lysa, are prepping a new classroom for CSI summer camp, where they will serve as camp counselors. Meanwhile, Erin's super-hot new boyfriend, Journey, is graduating, just in time for him to take a position as Victor's intern in the new CSI lab on campus. Journey and Victor are going to take another look at the evidence in the murder trial that sent Journey's father to prison. The girls are under strict orders not to meddle with the murder case, but that's easier said than done...

I jump away from Journey as if we were doing something wrong. “What the heck?”
Journey bounds out of his door with the enthusiasm of a golden retriever. Hand out, smile on. I proceed more cautiously.
“Hi. Journey Michaels.” His charm goes into overdrive. “You’re the new principal, aren’t you?”
She glares at him, arms crossed over her chest. “Where’s your parking pass?”
“Oh.” Journey digs out his wallet and pulls the parking pass from inside. He holds it up to show her. “The little thing that attached to the mirror broke off. Should I just put it on the dashboard?”
“You should go to the office and get a new one. Bring it out here and hang it on the mirror. Then hurry to class. If you’re late it’s on you.”
Seriously? Her lips move but nothing else. I expect her voice to sound flat and metallic.
Her gaze swivels to me with such intensity that for a second I worry that maybe I said that out loud. But I’m pretty sure I didn’t.
Journey barely seems to notice her odd mannerisms. He sways slightly. “I’m on it,” he promises her. “Don’t worry. But I’m a senior. We’re basically done with classes, so it’s not that big of a deal.”
She makes a pinched face. “You won’t walk if you have any demerits on the books. If I were you I’d hurry.”
I’m standing here witnessing crazy train in action when she again shifts her reptilian gaze in my direction. “Why are you still standing here?”
I open my mouth to explain or introduce myself and decide silence is the better option. I hurry off in the opposite direction from Journey. We glance at each other once and share a small wave.
And I thought our last principal was a psycho.
Actually, our last principal was a psycho.
But since there aren’t any other unsolved murders lurking in Iron Rain’s past, we’re probably not in any real danger.
