Thinking Scientifically: Terry Deary, Classified: Break Out. London: Kingfisher, 2004 (c. 1996)
I had decided not to blog this book. It's essentially a true crime story about Mike Baines, imprisoned in the US in 1977 for spying, told from the point of view if his cellmate who may or may not have helped him escape.
It's the may or may not that leads me to include it in my research notes. At the end of the book Deary takes us through all the evidence, showing a child how to subject it to analysis. I actually enjoyed this more than the story itself.
