Swindle by Gordon Korman

When Griffin is swindled out of a valuable baseball card, he puts together a group of friends to help him steal his card back. This is one of those on the edge of your seat adventures.

Activity: We gave the boys baseball cards and they flipped cards. Instructions can be found on http://www.streetplay.com/thegames/baseballcards.shtml
The leaders decided to turn this activity into part of the discussion. So, they began by asking questions about the book and the boy that answered correctly got to flip. This is when we began to see the success of allowing the activity to prompt the discussion.
