Summary, etc.:
Melissa is a nobody. Wilf is a slacker. Bond is a show-off. At least that's what their middle school teachers think. To everyone's surprise, they are the three students chosen to compete for a ten-thousand-dollar scholarship,solving clues that lead them to various locations around Chicago. At first the three contestants work independently, but it doesn't take long before each begins to wonder whether the competition is a sham, It's only by secretly joining forces and using their unique talents that the trio is able to uncover the truth behind the Ambrose Deception-a truth that involves a lot more than just a scholarship.
