Near Occasions: John Paul 2 High Book 5
School’s back in session at John Paul 2 High, and for students J.P. and Liz, not much could be worse.
The little start-up school where both their moms teach has doubled its number of students, bringing in a gaggle of clueless freshmen, singing charismatics, and annoying personages.

Unable to resist a challenge, Liz and J.P. get on the case. But the more they investigate the hazier the police evidence seems. And if the Sparrow Hills Shooter is still out there, no one is safe…
