“A gleefully metafictional caper and middle-grade picaresque bound to appeal to discerning young readers. ~ Kirkus Reviews

“There’s a lot to be said for a good, old-fashioned caper. Meloy accomplishes this rare feat with panache, turning out an infectious—and at times cinematic—adventure suffused with personal growth, secrecy, sleight of hand, and higher stakes than the story’s protagonist ever imagined.” — Booklist (starred review)
