Staff Reviews


"This book is really good, you guys! There are schemes. There are plots.
There are plots within plots. There's intrigue. There's a whole host of
great kids to get to know (led by the impossibly charming,
not-so-reformed con artist Jackson Greene). There's a TWIST you won't
see coming. And all the while the fate of the class presidential
election hangs precariously in the balance. Will evil triumph? Or will
good old-fashioned trickery save the day? Talk about
keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat DRAMA!"

— Meghan G.

Description


"A political heist page-turner set in middle school? Is that even possible? Varian Johnson shows us how it's done." - Gordon Korman, author of SWINDLE
"Do yourself a favor and start reading immediately." - Rebecca Stead, author of WHEN YOU REACH ME
Jackson Greene swears he's given up scheming. Then school bully Keith Sinclair announces he's running for Student Council president, against Jackson's former friend Gaby de la Cruz. Gaby wants Jackson to stay out of it -- but he knows Keith has "connections" to the principal, which could win him the presidency no matter the vote count.
So Jackson assembles a crack team: Hashemi Larijani, tech genius. Victor Cho, bankroll. Megan Feldman, science goddess. Charlie de la Cruz, reporter. Together they devise a plan that will take down Keith, win Gaby's respect, and make sure the election is done right. If they can pull it off, it will be remembered as the school's greatest con ever -- one worthy of the name THE GREAT GREENE HEIST.
