I could not get into this book. Sometimes it seemed like it was written like a journal, or maybe a conversation with alot of questions from Robbie. The main reason I didn't like the story was that the character Robbie was written too young for her age. She was in grade 7 but seemed to be mentally more like eight. Like Robbie I liked the concept of the book but not the book. ( )

This story is definitely a fast-paced, adventure filled read. Even though Robbie is a girl, I can see this appealing to both boys and girls, as her quartet of outlaws is made up of two of each. Because of its pace and social justice storyline, it would be a great choice for reluctant readers wanting to start a new novel and great lead to fairytales in the classroom. However, not being in the target reading market, I did wish there had been a bit more exploration into the story of this charm of Robbie's. All in all, a fast and fun read. ( )

Stephen King's "Favorite American Suspense Novelist" is launching a new series for middle graders

Robbie Forester always knew life wasn't fair, but she never thought she could do anything about it. Until one day a powerful charm comes into her possession, a charm that guides her, her three friends, and her dog Pendleton on the path to justice. But the charm doesn't seem to understand that the path has gotten dangerous, and Robbie and her friends find themselves in a menacing world of thievery, arson, big yachts, and even bigger bank accounts. Will Robbie and her band of thieves end up in more trouble than they ever could have imagined? Edgar Award–winning novelist Peter Abrahams weaves a tale of action, adventure, danger, and magic that keeps readers on the edge of their seats, guessing at every turn.

"Unputdownable. Memorable characters and a breakneck pace make Robbie Forester the total package." - Stephen King

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:13:43 -0400)

After getting a strange charm bracelet from a homeless woman, thirteen-year-old Robyn Forester and new friends join together to fight injustice in their Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood.
