Lawless by Jeffrey Salane

An action-packed, globe-spanning adventure begins here!

Welcome to Lawless, where the head of the class is a dangerous place to be.

M Freeman is the newest student at the prestigious (and mysterious) Lawless School. All she really wants is to fit in, but from the moment she arrives, her unusual skills have the whole academy buzzing. M excels at escape tactics. She's a whiz at spotting a forgery. But can she tell right from wrong? She'll have to figure it out fast, because some of her teachers are planning the crime of the century . . . and M and her classmates might be the only people who can stop them.

Jeffrey Salane's debut novel is full of twists and turns, reveals and reversals. Spoiling the ending for your friends would be criminal!

Read an Excerpt

From LAWLESS:

Ms. Watts clicked her ballpoint pen, and a slight humming sound whirred within the room. Ms. Watts's expression did not change, but her shoulders tensed faintly.

"Ms. Freeman, I'm going to go off record for a moment, which is why I've excused Ms. Smith from this room. If you repeat anything I say from this moment on, I will deny everything. I knew your father. I knew him very well. You are your father's daughter, and I hope you'll understand in time why I'm telling you this. Forget the Lawless School. Forget everything that just happened. Walk out that door, do not talk to Ms. Smith, get in your car, and go home. Do not open that envelope I've handed you. Burn it and scatter the ashes."

Click went the ballpoint pen again, and the humming was gone as quickly as it started.

M Freeman (M, just M) has been trained all of her life for Lawless School for criminals. She just doesn't know it. At her interview, M answers all of the questions perfectly. You're not supposed to answer all of the questions perfectly. Never in the history of Lawless School has anybody done perfect. M isn't a normal Lawless student. First, she recieves a code telling her not to trust somebody close to her. Shortly, she finds herself flying a plane even though her biggest fear is heughts. Then all of her things go missing, including her ticket to a mandatory assembly. She finds her way in, but she gets exactly what she doesn't want: attention. When classes start, she finds herself doing odd things like waking up in little nooks and crannies and destroying the school library. But an elite group called the Masters takes special interest in her, and M takes an interest in a painting. The Masters say she can pick one thing to steal and they will help her do it. She says she wants to steal the painting she's taken interest in: the Takeway Rembrant, a.k.a. Jacob de Gheyn the Third. On this mission, she finds out more about her father and why he died. Back at Lawless, she realizes her enemy is her friend, and whose side she really is on.

This book was good, and certainly exciting, but after a few chapters it got really confusing. The book gave me a god rush, and was very interesting, but it kept changing from one thing to another.

What I Thought- This was a fun book. I liked the idea of a criminal school. This may sound kind of scary, but I would like to go there. It would be really cool. I am interested in criminology, and also activities like lock picking, pick-pocketing, etc. (Don’t ask why – I don’t know). Putting these skills to a use would be awesome (but for a good cause like counter-espionage or something like that – I digress…). M was a great character. She is everything I look for in a main character and Mr. Salane lets the reader really get into her head. Plus it was cool and mysterious how her name was only “M”. Her personality was well-developed. You feel like you really know M by the end of the book. I liked reading about her adventures in the school (and also outside of it). The book brings up incredibly strong self-provoking philosophical points – what is considered bad? -good? How far would you go on either way? I enjoyed reading this great debut every second. I read it in one day it was that good! *NOTE* I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
