Who Killed Mr. Chippendale by Mel Glenn

WhoKilledMrChippendaleWho killed Mr. Chippendale? by Mel Glenn

Someon shoots and kills Mr. Chippendale, an English teacher at Tower High School, while he’s running early morning on the school track. Told in free verse by students, staff and police investigating, the poems give insight into Mr. Chippendale’s impact on staff and students, ass well as the characters themselves. The guidance counselor comes up with a plan to lure the murderer out into the open. An epilogue tells what the main characters are doing thirteen years later. Multiple poems of several characters speaking in their own voices make them distinct personalities.

This is a fast read with an intriguing plot.
