The Lordes Taketh, Stealing Greenwich, a new series in the YA genre.
Frankie Lorde has a great dad. She loves him and he loves her. They are a team. A team of jewel thieves to be precise.
Learning from her dad has given her a skill set not every girl has. Like lock picking and spotting the cops or stealing valuable cars and jewels. But every thing eventually must end and this ends with daddy in prison and Frankie sent to live with her uncle. The Cop. Now she has to learn a new set of life-skills. How to fit in at middle school, how to act her age.
She is also living in the affluent town of Greenwich, which for her is like living in a candy store. She still sees the chasm between the haves and the have-nots and that gives her an idea… but will it be a good idea or a bad one?
This is the first in a new series that I know my 6th grader loved. Frankie is a cool character and we liked her a lot.
