Griff Carver, Hallway PatrolGriff 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 wait, journal. Never call it a diary.
