The stakes heighten when Robyn catches wind of a larger plot to destroy the city she loves as her classmate Marcus, an unaware apprentice reporter, tails her as both suitor and newsman. Based on the classic tale Robin Hood, this novel tells the story of Robyn and her band of "Merry Men," a trio of teenage misfits who assist as she robs from the bad and gives to the good in an effort to save the 'hood.
"I thought I didn't like to read, but this book was hard to put down. I couldn't believe how much Robyn's life was like my own."
-Teisha Williams, high school student
"Many of my students read Robyn's 'Hood and loved it - so did I. As both a reader and an educator, I highly recommend it."
-Leslie Lipton, teacher
