The main character in this book is Duncan, he is a curious, caring, and a sarcastic 17 year old boy who works at the Toronto Transit Commission's lost and found. While he was going through the lost and found boxes he finds a serial killer’s diary with the people he is trying to kill. He tries to catch him using the help of the police but they don't believe him. So, he is the one who tries to find the serial killer and stop him.

The Pursuit of Happiness

A single father trying to take care of his son while trying to get a job as a stockbroker and while being homeless and sleeping in public restrooms.


  • Well designed
  • Organized
  • Biography
  • Informative


I personally think that my book entertains audience by its mystery and not knowing what's going to happen next (for example Is he going to find the serial killer ). The book keeps informing the readers with new information every chapter of the book. I recommend this book for anyone who wants a mystery motivational story.
