Framed is a really good book! It was a Mark Twain Award Nominee in 2018-2019.Framed is in a trilogy; the other books are called Vanished and Trapped.
Framed is about a boy named Florian Bates. Florian has lived all over. He has lived in Boston, Rome, France, and now Washington, D.C. His parents work at museums, so he has to move a lot. Florian is twelve and in seventh grade, but Florian isn’t just any seventh grader. He can know everything about you just by looking at you. He uses something he calls T.O.A.S.T.; The Theory Of All Small Things. Florian looks at all the small details until they make a big picture.
One day Florian solves a case for the FBI. Someone stole art from the museum, and Florian figured out that some people were missing and where the paintings were. After that the FBI asked him to be a secret consultant with them.
My favorite characters are Kayla, Marcus, Margaret, and Florian. Kayla is an FBI agent who looks like a little kindergarten teacher, but is really like a martial arts ninja. Marcus is the FBI agent who is with Margaret and Florian most of the time. Margaret is Florian’s best friend. She plays soccer and helps Florian with his cases.
This book is for 4th-6th Graders.
I give this book 5 out 5 bookworms.
