To Catch a Cheat
We're super stoked to welcome back awesome Austin middle grade author Varian Johnson with To Catch a Cheat, the follow-up to the spectacular bestseller The Great Greene Heist! The Gang Greene reunites for their biggest job yet. To clear their names after being falsely accused of flooding the school gym, they'll have to outrun the school's security cameras, outwit a nosy member of the Honor Board, and outmaneuver the blackmailers while setting a trap for them in turn. Bring your young reader down today to discover this latest big adventure!
