Willa's secret plan seems all too simple. Take from the rich kids at valley prep and give to the poor ones. Yet Willa's turn as Robin Hood at her new high school is anything but. Bilking her "friends"—known to everyone as the Glitterati—without them suspecting a thing is far from easy. Learning how to break into lockers and Beemers is as hard as she'd thought it would be. Delivering care packages to the scholarship girls, who are bullied just for being different, is more fun than she'd expected. The complication Willa didn't expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, VP's most notorious ace-degenerate. His mere existence is distracting Willa from what matters most to her—evening the social playing field between the haves and have-nots. There's no time for flirting, especially with conceited trust-funders like Aidan. But when the cops start investigating the string of thefts at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek revenge, could Aidan wind up being the person that Willa trusts most? Elisa Ludwig's Pretty Crooked is the first book in an adventurous teen caper series filled with mystery, humor, and heart.

I had been excited for this book for a while so I was happy to finally get to read it. And I must say for the most part it didn't disappoint. It basically was a book to set up the planned series so we only got to see snippets of each character and there is a lot left unanswered but I really enjoyed ...
I'll be honest and say that I've never really been into the whole Robin Hood thing but there have been spins on this storyline that I've read in the past and have enjoyed immensely and thought that I would probably enjoy this story as well and while for the most part, I did enjoy it- there were time...
