MMGM:Lawless by Jeffrey Salane

Marvelous Middle Grade Monday is a meme started by Shannon Messenger to celebrate middle grade books. This week I’m looking at LAWLESS by Jeffrey Salane

If I could give this book a grade I would give it an A+. It was a bit slow to start because I didin’t really get it. The characters in this book are really cool.

I would recommend this book to my friends because it’s very exciting, scary and sometimes confusing. It’s difficult to read but I liked it!

The best part was when M tried to steal the painting, Jacob De Gheyn 3 and she almost got caught.

I would change when M loses the painting in the lake. I would have her break it by accident. I think you should know that it is interesting, funny, scary and confusing. Also here’s what Goodreads has to say about it:

The Lawless School provides the right education for kids on the wrong side of the law.

M Freeman has been homeschooled her entire life. So M has no idea just how unusual her education has been – not until she leaves home to attend the prestigious (and mysterious) Lawless School.

Suddenly, it’s very clear to M that her tutors have been preparing her all along for a life of crime. She excels at escape tactics. She’s a whiz at spotting forgeries. Her years of piano lessons pay off when picking pockets and cracking safes.

M’s newfound talent for criminal mischief soon brings her to the attention of the Masters, the secretive school’s most secretive clique. M’s interest in the Masters is personal – joining this international dishonor society is her best chance to learn the truth about her father’s life . . . and his death. But when her first real-world heist goes wrong, M is left wondering: Is there truly honor among thieves?

LAWLESS will be published in April 2013 from Scholastic! YAY!!
