Looking for a good middle grade adventure this summer for you and your kids LOOT by Jude Watson should be at the top of your list Jude knows this territory well Not only does she write beautiful prose worthy of the National Book Award which she won, writing as Judy Blundell She also understand what kids want in a fast paced action story She has written numerous novels set in the Star Wars universe, and is also a veteran of the 39 Clues, which I was lucky enough to be part of.Still, none of that [...]
There is a lot to love about Loot Jewel heists Master plans Kid criminals Yes, please I love stories about kid spies or criminals both would be even better and this book had potential Sadly, I can t call it a favorite I don t love itbut I don t hate it either.The main characters were Jules, March, Darius and Izzy They were all pretty awesome and even though the likelihood of kids having their abilities is practically non existent, I enjoyed the humor and energy between them The teamwork is incre [...]

A murder mystery, a jewel heist, a deadly curse and a long lost twin while this may sound like the plot of a new soap opera, they actually add up to the best middle grade novel to come across my desk in a long, long time With thrills than a roller coaster ride, this book is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat but just be careful because March McQuin and his sister are born thieves and in the end they might just make off with your heart.
I think it was pretty good it wasn t the best But it did draw me into it soooo
nice shirt bro
This is the first book in the Loot series by Jude Watson The story is a bit far fetched, but it is a lot of fun and very dramatic I really enjoyed listening to Michael Crouch narrate the story on audiobook He is a very talented narrator and was very adept at changing his voice to match the myriad characters Overall, it s an entertaining story for middle grade readers and I am looking forward to listening to Sting next.
I really liked this book The beginning was sort of slow, but it became very fast paced towards the middle The ending was GREAT So many unexpected twists Best Bits Darius and Izzy All the heists The mysteriousness of BlueCan t wait to pick up the second book.
A tip you can find this audiobook on Spotify Likes Darius and Izzy I loved that they were like siblings and were always protecting each other Fast paced, with lots of adventures Cons Now, I know IRL that s an awful thing to do but I love them in books, they re so clever Could be better A lot of situations were really pretty improbable but it s a MD so I m not too picky

If you re going to do it, don t do it stupid Pretty good advice if you ask me It s one of the things March s father always said It s repeated throughout the book as the characters plan their heists to get 7 million dollars for some very special moonstones I absolutely loved Loot It was so much fun to read, and I enjoyed the characters I liked the constant action I felt like there was a lot of mistrust between the characters They were all so afraid some one was going to double cross them and it g [...]

The most striking aspect of this book was the character who was a clear ukelele playing, corset wearing, eyebrow drawing on tribute to Amanda Palmer.
This was a great book I would definitely recommend it to my friends who are interested in mystery type of books.
It was ok It kind of feels rushed towards the end It s fairly harmless
Loot The book Loot by Jude Watson is about a boy whose dad fell from a building and died while he was robbing a building When his dad was dying, he managed to say find Jules At first he thought his dad meant gems March, the son, ran away because the police were looking for him While March was running away, he came across a show and he noticed one girl in particular.The girl s name was Jules and at that moment March realized that his dad was talking about the girl Jules was his twin sister The po [...]
I loved this book It was just one of those books that made you not want to put it down I loved March s character he was always finding clues that his dad left him that no one else would have found if March wasn t there I think it was really cool right in the beginning of the book by setting the tone when Alfie fell of the roof and he told March, Find jewels I think that line was really important becauses I think it had two meaning One to find his sister and the other to find jewels I also really [...]
I read this for M.C.B.A and I thought that there were many parts that were very funny I liked the plot, and it was interesting to see how March and Jules viewed the world My only complaint is that the epilogue did not seem very realistic.
I enjoyed the whole children thieves thing the book had going on, but it was just hard for me to get into It was a decent book, with decent character development i.e Darius , I enjoyed the witty sarcastic narrative, and my person favorite moment was when they escaped from the group home, but other than that, it was a meh book to me.
This was a pretty fun read for teens I d recommend it to fans of Alex Rider There was a lot of action and suspense, with moderately likable characters I d veer toward 3.5 stars but ultimately it was innocuous.
Do you want to know how to steal a bunch of gems Well if you do then this is the right book for you Loot is a great book about a boy who is born into a life with a thief for a dad As for right now he is a get away driver for his dad who is stealing the valuable stones in the world, Moon stones They do not actually come from the moon but when it is a full moon then they glow and people say they have a curse on them Back to the boy being a get away driver he see s his dad on the roof of the mansio [...]
I recommend to young adult boy readers, and readers who are into crime stories The narrator is the son of a jewelry thief, and is a thief himself Humans aren t meant to look back Or else we d be able to turn our heads in a 180 just like an owl This is one of the life lessons that March learned from his father before he tragedy died It turns out to be one of the themes of the story No matter what obstacles are throw at you, keep moving forward Do not get stuck in the past or the present too long. [...]
This book is an excellent middle grade readI would recommend it to 11 and 13 year olds because of its light hearted action and very low on violenceever as for someone who has read Heist Society by Ally Carter.Loot is lacking in the action department.but still an enjoyable readI liked the sub plotd the ending was fascinating So all in all it s a good story and a fulfilling read
March McQuin was shocked Right before his eyes, his own father had fallen off a roof, and was dying Of course, some would say the man deserved it, as his dad was Alfie McQuin, infamous burglar, and March was his lesser known partner in crime His dad handed him a strange stone, and gave him these final words Find jewels When March is at the airport being sent to an orphanage his mother had passed away when he was young , he meets Jules McQuin his long lost sister that he didn t know he had who wa [...]
