Loot
Loot How to Steal A Fortune By Watson, Jude Book - 2014

It's reasonable to expect a substantial amount of suspense when reading a novel about jewel thieves, which is the basis of Loot. Younger readers are presented with an endearing story of the son of an infamous thief, who left clues for him to find his sister and obtain precious moonstones to take them out of the possibility of foster care. The author sympathizes well with readers as the characters relate to the intended audience, making the adventure more genuine. It involves a play on emotion as the protagonist's father dies from a fall of an Amsterdam building, leaving him a witness to his own orphanage. His sister is the last person he has to rely on, adding to a meaningful unity later on. Together, they must use their intuition to solve the clues, and fight through the tense streets of other untrustworthy criminals. This brings about action scenes that fit well into the genre. Watson's writing revolves also around real-world applications, making for an informative yet fun read. Diction itself is relatively easy to understand for young readers. Loot is a worthwhile book, and showcases the author's ability to create a well-told story. Rating: 3.5 of 5 @Mercurial_Series of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
