Eight Cousins Pick of the Year 2014
Greene has worked diligently for the past four months to rehabilitate
his reputation after the Kelsey Job - or the Mid Day PDA as everyone
else at Maplewood Middle School likes to call it. Getting caught kissing
Katie Accord outside Principal Kelsey’s office was never part of the
plan and Jackson is usually an excellent planner (Rule #1: No matter how
simple a job looks, always plan before you act). That particular job
was supposed to go differently. It wasn’t supposed to alienate his best
friend Gaby de la Cruz. And it definitely wasn’t supposed to end with
him losing cell phone privileges and having weekly meetings interrogations with the principal. Jackson, understandably, isn’t keen
to plan any more cons. He’s retired. The Great Greene Heist is
a fast-paced adventure, perfect for middle-grade readers who like
school stories, mysteries, and appreciate a touch of style. Jackson is
smart, classy, and a fantastic new character.
