Praise for The Great Greene Heist: "A delightful and diverse cast of middle school students with a wide range of backgrounds and interest concocts a series of elaborate schemes . . . The elaborate bait-and-switch of this fast-paced, funny caper novel will surprise its readers as much as the victims." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review"A political heist page-turner set in middle school? Is that even possible? Varian Johnson shows us how it's done, expertly walking the tightrope between true-to-life school experiences and belly laughs." - Gordon Korman, author of Swindle and The Hypnotists"Pay attention! This terrific story speeds ahead on every page, but the lively characters will make you care enough to keep up. Do yourself a favor and start reading immediately." - Rebecca Stead, Newbery-winning author of When You Reach Me and Liar and Spy"This fast, funny heist novel takes the reader on a ride full of twists and turns. I'm a sucker for a good scam, and Jackson and his gang work one of the best in the business. Nice pull, Varian Johnson!" - Jude Watson, author of Loot and The 39 Clues: In Too Deep"The Great Greene Heist is one crazy cool caper!" - Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor-winning author of One Crazy Summer and P.S. Be 11"A smart, charming, and hilarious novel featuring one of my favorite protagonists in years. I'd follow Jackson Greene anywhere, and The Great Greene Heist is a fantastic ride." - Matt de la Pena, author of The Living and Mexican Whiteboy
