Griffin Bing's new principal doesn't like him. And Griffin doesn't like the boot camp football atmosphere the new principal has brought. Griffin manages to stay out of trouble -- until a Super Bowl ring disappears from the school's display case, with Griffin's retainer left in its place. Griffin has been framed! Unfortunately, the Man doesn't have a Plan - and everything his team tries to find out who really took the ring backfires. Griffin ends up in an alternate school, then under house arrest, and finally with an electronic anklet -

    another one of korman's masterpieces. goes in a little bit of a different direction than the other two swindle books. there is less of the man with the plans friends in it, but great book, nevertheless.

      Griffin Bing is framed for stealing a valuable Super Bowl ring, and the circumstantial evidence points to him, even though he didn't do anything! While Griffin is under his sentence, his crew tries to prove his innocence. The culprit is precisely the one who I did not expect. Korman is a master at incorporating twists, and this book is one of the best examples of this.

                  This book was my favorite in the series. It is about a boy named Griffin who gets framed for stealing a super bowl ring and is in house arrest and now Griffin and his friends have to find out how to prove that it was not him. It is an awesome book! I am sure you'll like it too!

                    This is one of my favorite books. It is so mysterious and amazing! Griffin Bing is framed and no one knows who framed him. His friends try to help him. Then when Griffin gets framed they try even harder. I love this book and you should read it.
