A death at a school, A trail of clues as haikus Makes rivals team up. It’s just another day at Green Hill Academy. That is, until two boys, Sohum and Suraj, stumble upon the corpse of their classmate! Along with the corpse, they find a journal containing haikus (17-syllable poems) at the scene of the crime. Too bad Sohum and Suraj are like fire and ice! Suraj is popular, sporty and the class topper. Sohum is fat, unpopular and Suraj’s biggest academic rival. Neither of them share the haiku journal with the police, since they want the ‘honour’ of solving the case first. But, in this clash of titans, who will be victorious? Sohum and Suraj soon realise that there is more to the case than meets the eye. As they uncover more and more secrets, they discover more about their classmates, teachers and the tangled web of relations that exists at Green Hill. Can they solve the mystery before the police and stay one step ahead of everyone else? And perhaps, most importantly, can they overcome their greatest hurdles – each other?

It was a really thrilling read and I can easily envision this book adapted to a nice web series, but a good one that stays true to the original plot.

Hai-Clue by Reijul Sachdev is a murder mystery novel that would appeal to most young adults who enjoy solving puzzles or hidden mysteries through clues.

I really loved how the author creatively used the concept of haikus which made the book so appealing.
