Introduction: Jenny, Max, Lydia and Prairie were friends and formed a group called the Snob Squad. A thief in Jenny’s middle school had been stealing Mrs. Jonas and Ms Milner’s money. They wanted to find out who was the culprit of the thefts. They suspected Max, Kevin Rooney and Ashley Krupps. Max suddenly came to school in new expensive sports shoes.
