Title: The Bike Rack Falls
Genre: Middle Grade
Length: 6,200
Author: J Monkeys

The first day of third grade at the Baker Street Elementary School should have been a great day for Humphrey “Homes” Jefferies—until his dreams of a wind-whipping race home are smashed when he finds that the bike rack has fallen over and his brand-new, uber-cool bike has been stolen. Certain that nefarious plans are afoot, and with both ADHD and a sugar addiction, Homes needs his twin brother, Dwight Wilbur “DW” Jefferies, to help him follow clues and interview suspects. Can these African-American twins adopted into a multicultural family solve the mystery before Homes must suffer the ultimate humiliation: riding his old dinosaur bike in the town’s bike parade?
