The new Scholastic Library series of nonfiction books tell stories about cutting-edge technologies and scientific techniques used by real-life detectives. Written for struggling readers in grades 8-12, it uses charts, timelines and maps as visuals. It also gives students practical knowledge on science and introduces vocabulary that is crucial to their development as readers. The first collection demonstrates how chemistry and dentistry enter real-life investigations, such as how a forensic dentist uncovered the crucial piece of evidence that sealed the case against convicted serial killer Ted Bundy.
