Grades 4 & up
When your father is a notorious jewel thief, you learn more about crime than regular school work. When Alfie McQueen is killed during his latest job, his twelve year old son March sets off to run like his father taught him. Unfortunately, he is nabbed by the authorities, and sent to a juvenile group home, with the twin sister he didn’t know that he had. Together they must figure out if they can trust each other, and also how to pull off the biggest heist of their lives. A fun romp, full of near misses and back-stabbing double dealers, this life or death adventure will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Recommended for grades 4-8.
