March McQuin was shocked. Right before his eyes, his own father had fallen off a roof, and was dying. Of course, some would say the man deserved it, as his dad was Alfie McQuin, infamous burglar, and March was his lesser known partner-in-crime. His dad handed him a strange stone, and gave him these final words – “Find jewels”. When March is at the airport being sent to an orphanage (his mother had passed away when he was young), he meets Jules McQuin (his long-lost sister that he didn’t know he had) who was going to the orphanage with him. They soon realize that the orphanage is not much better than a prison. At the orphanage they meet Darius and Izzy, who also hate the place, and they all break out. March realizes the stone his dad gave him as he was dying is much more than it seems and the jewels he told him to find was really Jules his sister. Soon the gang of kids find themselves not only evading the juvenile authorities but also going on a crime spree to “recover” more of the strange stones. The original owner (the one who March’s dad stole the stones from) offered the kids 7 million dollars for the return of all the stones. Sounds simple? Not really. The kids have to compete with an old associate of Alfie’s, a detective turned TV Show-Host, and time. The McQuins and friends have their work cut out for them. This. Was. An. AWESOME BOOK!!! Ms. Watson has written an amazing, thrilling, and completely action-packed book that kept me on the edge of my seat at all times. Gordon Korman (on the back of the book) wrote that is has “more twists than a pretzel factory” and he is totally right – in a good way! Ms. Watson has a way of drawing you in, and not letting you go until that final period. Just when I thought I had things figured out, the story took another turn. I loved that I never really knew who to trust in the plot. March is a great character and not even a bad guy (for the son of a thief). He hurts no one, and makes theft an art- form. The book is appropriate for all ages but the scene where Alfie dies may be a bit much for some young kids (nothing too graphic). The first ten pages of the story had me wondering. They were a bit slower than I am used to with Ms. Watson’s books, but then **BAM** she grabs you by the nose and doesn’t let it out of the book until the end. After I got done reading the book, I realized how much of the story was set up in those first ten pages. Ms. Watson is a masterful author. *NOTE* I got an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

This is an action/adventure and some mystery. Twists and turns a- plenty. Keeps you guessing to the end.

I was immeadiately turned off by Loot's cover. I prefer the more subtle ones, however i started the book and couldnt let myself close it. Im a slow reader but i finished this one in a matter of hours. With a teaam of characters youre guarenteed to love, loot sucks you in and makes you guess at every twist and turn. It is hilarious and heartbreaking, with a mix of humor and friendship, loot needs no love stiry or cover to make it phenomenal.

This book is just great because it is about friends that go on wonderful adventures together, and find some loot. ( also known as tresure or dimonds.)

I understand that losts of people enjoy this book. But I do not. I am guessing you fans are yelling at me right now. But, on my part, I am only on the 5th to 7th chapter. The part where you find out Jules broke into the muesum/what ever that place is called. I was also FORCED to read this book!I repeat, FORCED! Curse this stupid summer reading list. I rather read warrior cats! CAT BELOW!!!!!! A A O O - O
