Ted and his sister Kat have taken their cousin Salim to ride the London Eye, one of that city's most famous landmarks. They wave to him as he boards, and watch as his pod goes slowly around the giant wheel. When it gets back to the bottom everyone exits, but Salim is nowhere to be seen. It's as if he has vanished into thin air! As the grownups freak out and the police search, Ted and Kat have a few theories of their own. Ted's brain is wired differently than other people's. He has Asperger's syndrome, which makes him great at facts and figures but not so great at reading people. With his head for seeing connections and Kat's people skills, they are determined to find out what happened to Salim. Did he run away? Or was he kidnapped? The London Eye Mystery, told from Ted's perspective, is a page-turning mystery and a fascinating look into a unique mind.
