The Great Greene Heist by Varian Johnson

Jackson Greene is the type of kid that gets into trouble but is impossible to stay mad at.  He is fiercely loyal to his friends, and he is extremely clever.  But, Jackson got caught, and he is not allowed to have a cell phone.  This is extreme punishment for a kid who likes to stay connected.  He has vowed to be good, and he has given up scheming.  Or, at least he had given it up until he unfolds a plot where his ex-girlfriend is being cheated out of the election for class president.  This brings Jackson out of retirement.  Now, he is going to have to put together a crew to bring down not only the student running against Gabriela but the greedy principal as well.  Will Jackson be able to do it without getting caught or having people know that he was behind it?  Read this fast-paced story to find out.

Okay, so it is really unfair for me to tell you about this book because it does not go on sale until the end of this month.  But, well...sorry.  It was great.  I love a good con story, and this was a fun one to read.  In the vein of The Sting and Ocean's 11, 12, and 13, this story will have you wanting to move the pages quickly to get to the next part.

Book 4 in SRC14.
