Griff Carver, Hallway Patrol by Jim Krieg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you took Law and Order, most buddy cop movies you've seen and dragnet and crammed it all into middle school, you'd have Griff Carver. All the usual suspects are there, the hard boiled cop (safety patrol officer), the scrappy journalist, the eager young partner, and even the crooked politician (who's running for class president). Add in a ring of fake hall pass pushers, a principal who is only interested in quiet well-behaved cops, and even a nervous snitch and you've got a great story told through incident reports, recorded interviews with the guidance councilor and entries from a diary...no wait, journal. Never call it a diary.
