"Is it any wonder I became a bank robber?" But she never dreamed she'd fall in love . . . Wealthy high school student Robin McArthur thinks she has it all figured out when it comes to bilking her work-a-holic dad for guilt money as a substitute for his genuine affection. Until one day he suffers a stroke at his law office, and she learns the brutal truth- They're broke. Her stepmom has skipped the country. And everyone from bankers to bookies has lined up in her dad's hospital room to collect on the millions he's racked up in debt. Panicked and desperate, Robin figures she has two choices: either surrender to the pestering caseworker and live in a skanky foster home, or take a chance and sneak her dad out of the hospital to make a run for it. Little does she know that stealing a car and hitting the road means that before the day is through, she will rob her first bank. Now an outlaw, Robin finds a backwoods trailer park to hide her dad from authorities where she encounters Creek, a bad-boy in crime who first steals her money and then steals her heart. The two of them embark on a round of increasingly dangerous heists to provide for their motley trailer park neighbors. But what Robin hadn't counted on is the way these hardscrabble people begin to embrace her and become the first real family she's ever known. And along the way, worldly-wise Creek teaches her how to develop a genuine relationship with her dad based on the hard truths of their lives instead of his past lies. As Robin and Creek's criminal journey forces them to make gut-wrenching choices, they soon begin to discover that people are more precious than pocketbooks, and true love means opening your heart to the kinds of treasures money can't buy.(

The opening chapter of this book will hook you in!Robin is definitely not used to living the way the people at Turtle Shores do. It becomes quite an adjustment for her, but one that she makes pretty well. She may even like the group that she now lives among. I love that Robin begins to learn that...

4.5 Stars"Wait, what do I do?" "You git on a helmet honey!" crackled a voice in the darkness. Granny Tinker appeared next to us with a pot on her head. She shoved one onto mine.

This review and more at Sab The Book EaterRight from the first 4 pages of the book, I was seriously hooked! Robin is simply one of the wittiest and funniest main characters ever. Robin 'says it like she sees it' as Diane would put it. And it's true! I was so tempted to highlight some of her lines bu...
My Rating: 3.0 Two things caught my attention immediately when I first saw Robin in the Hood: the fact that Robin is a fifteen-year-old girl robbing banks and the sentence "he reveals to Robin in between drools: He truly does love her." How could I resist reading Robin in the Hood after reading that...
