Four friends investigate whether their favorite singer is a fraud in this installment of the Cyber Sleuths chapter book series.

Ameer, Rika, Tim, and Cara have a lot in common, including a devotion to their favorite singer, Self-Akeem. But when the pop star is accused of lip-syncing, the four friends are split by the scandal.

Created in partnership with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), this action-packed chapter book is perfect for young readers and demonstrates valuable media literacy skills.
