To everyone's surprise, they are the three students chosen to compete for a ten thousand-dollar scholarship, solving clues that lead them to various locations around Chicago. At first the three contestants work independently, but it doesn't take long before each begins to wonder whether the competition is a sham. It's only by secretly joining forces and using their unique talents that the trio is able to uncover the truth behind the Ambrose Deception--a truth that involves a lot more than just a scholarship

My ten year old son LOVED this book and the below is his comments and thoughts on this book.:
Three middle school students get selected to take part in a $10,000 scholarship..   These three students have to race around Chicago to answer challenging questions.  Three unlikely friends band together when they suspect that there is something strange about the competition. Together they help each other uncover the questions behind the scholarship!

I loved this books it was a mystery/treasure hunt style book with you not knowing who will win!  It was interesting watching the kids have to answer questions and figure out clues.  I would recommend this book to my friends.
