I have been searching the internet for this book for YEARS so please help if you can!! I read it about 5 years ago. I think the cover might have had like an old brown tree on it? But I cant remember the title or author.
Anyway so basically it is from the point of view if this teenage boy. One day, his neighbor, who was an old lady, was found dead. I believe she fell out of a window or was hung or something. People think it was an accident but the boy starts to believe someone murdered her. As his older cousin is planning her wedding and all the family members are caught up in the chaos of wedding planning, he tries to tell them that he thinks the old lady was murdered, but no one listens. Someone starts targeting him to shut him up but he doesn't know who is is. They tried shooting him, throwing a flower pot on his head, and at a family function while he was up in his room, he heard a knock and saw a plate of chicken outside his door. He thinks his mom made it for him and left it there, but he wasn't hungry so it fed it to his cat. His cat got sick and he realized it was poisoned. He also at one point, found out who it was because he saw one his family friends at the family function and he had cat scratches on his arm from when he was murdering the old lady and her cat scratched him. It ends with them both being in the deceased lady's house somehow and the man is gonna kill the boy, but the boy grabs a random spider and tells the man that it it poisonous and throws it at him.1 AnswerBooks & Authors1 year ago
So I read this murder mystery- type book a couple years ago & I can't remember the title, author, or names of characters. Its very hard to find a book without that information, so hopefully someone will recognise this plot:
This old lady dies by falling out of a window, I think. She is neighbors with this family, and the boy is the main character. He thinks she might have been murdered or something and then he becomes the target of attempted murders. He gets a shell-gun thing shot at him & flower pot almost hitting his head. The worst part is that the murderer is someone he knows. His sister or aunt or someone in his family is planning her wedding and I think her fiance or someone friends with the family is his suspect. When the murderer pushed the lady out the window, her cat scratched his arm, so the boy looks for someone with long sleeves. He pulls the sleeve off one guy and there are scratches so he knows its him& the guy is now openly trying to kill him. He tries things such as posoining some chicken dinner and putting it outside his door to his room so he thinks his mom made it for him. He isnt hungry so he feeds it to his cat, who gets sick & he realizes it was poisioned. I forget a lot of details but it ends with them in the house together alone & he was gonna kill the boy somehow, and the boy picks up a random spider and says its a black widow & throws it on his face& he runs. It turned out to be the lady's son who killed her, cause of money or something1 AnswerBooks & Authors2 years ago
