Loot: How to Steal a Fortune by Jude Watson

March McQuinn is the son of master jewel thief Alfie McQuinn. On a dark night when March is supposed to meet his father, Alfie falls from a rooftop to the wet pavement below. As sirens wail in the distance, Alfie manages only to get out a few last words to his 12-year-old son.  These words, which seem to make no sense, turn out to be cryptic clues and instructions. What March hears as "find jewels" turns out to be "find Jules," the twin sister he never knew he had. The reason for the separation at age two appears to involve seven missing and purportedly cursed moonstones.

Led by clues left by their deceased father, the twins, along with two juvenile delinquents, Darius and Izzy, begin a race against time to find the moonstones and claim a $7 million dollar reward. If they fail, they know the consequence will be entering the foster care system...or worse.

Loot: How to Steal a Fortune is filled with suspense, mystery, and action. Fansof the 39 Clues series will find much to love about this book too. Great mystery, fascinating schemes, and unending adventure. Loot has been nominated for the Intermediate 2016-2017 Golden Sower Award. Pick this one up and you won't be disappointed!
