It's another day at Hurston Middle School until a message is broadcast inside the computer lab that says, "Our principal, Ms. Kelly, is dead."

True to the Ghostwriter Team's reputation, no sooner after the message appears, they are hot on the trail of this "electronic" foe.

But, can the team find out who the suspicious "Max Mouse" is before he or she causes some real damage???

Part 1

Intro

At Hurston Middle School, an exasperated Lenni enters the computer classroom. She sits next to Jamal, seeing him writing something down. She panics asking him if they now have homework for computer class. She worries knowing that she already has enough in her other classes. Then Jamal asks her to calm down. It isn't computer class homework. Instead, he is working on his own essay. So he can get into the High School of Science. She expresses her relief, and says she is glad she isn't trying to get into a special high school. She feels that she already has enough trouble getting through grade 8.

Then suddenly, the computers all say: "EMERGENCY!!!" Ghostwriter tries to enter the computer. Then he turns red struggling to read the word and gets kicked out. Jamal is worried about Ghostwriter and Lenni wants to know what is going on. Then in large all capitol purple letters, the word "ATTENTION" appears. Then another message on all the computers appears. It says: "OUR PRINCIPAL, MS. KELLY, IS DEAD!!! Max Mouse Mm~". Then Lenni and Jamal, along with everyone else in the classroom, are shocked, horrified and devastated by the news from the message.
