LOOT by Jude Watson (WoW #188)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!


Hijinks, heists, and high-octane fun abounds in a new adventure from bestselling author Jude Watson.

On a foggy night in Amsterdam, a man falls from a rooftop to the wet pavement below. It’s Alfie McQuinn, the notorious cat burglar, and he’s dying. As sirens wail in the distance, Alfie manages to get out two last words to his young son, March: “Find jewels.”

But March learns that his father is not talking about a stash of loot. He’s talking about Jules, the twin sister March never knew he had. No sooner than the two find each other, they’re picked up by the police and sent to the world’s worst orphanage. It’s not prison, but it feels like it.

March and Jules have no intention of staying put. They know their father’s business inside and out, and they’re tired of being pushed around. Just one good heist, and they’ll live the life of riches and freedom most kids only dream about.

Watch out! There are wild kids on the loose and a crime spree coming . . .

LOOT releases on June 24th, 2014 from Scholastic.

Love the cover! And the synopsis sounds exciting! What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

    Great pick! I hadn’t seen this one yet and I’ve been dying for another book like this. I’m hoping it will be as good as Ally Carter’s Heist, but that’s a pretty high expectation so we’ll see.

    Here’s my WOW.
