Willa's secret plan seems all too simple: take from the rich kids at Valley Prep and give to the poor ones.
Yet Willa's turn as Robin Hood at her ultra-exclusive high school is anything but. Bilking her "friends"-known to everyone as the Glitterati-without them suspecting a thing, is far from easy. Learning how to pick pockets and break into lockers is as difficult as she'd thought it'd be. Delivering care packages to the scholarship girls, who are ostracized just for being from the "wrong" side of town, is way more fun than she’d expected.
The complication Willa didn't expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, Valley Prep's most notorious (and gorgeous) ace-degenerate. His mere existence is distracting Willa from what matters most to her-evening the social playing field between the have and have-nots. There's no time for crushes and flirting with boys, especially conceited and obnoxious trust-funders like Aidan.
But when the cops start investigating the string of burglaries at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek revenge, could he wind up being the person that Willa trusts most?
This was such a fantastic book! I enjoyed it so much! A modern day Robin Hood, but a girl? Just awesome! I just utterly loved that idea, and I'm really excited that this is a series, because man, this book was really great!
Willa's awesome. Infiltrating the Glitterati, to Robin Hood them, was really great! They were not nice girls (and while stealing normally is bad, this is a book, and it isn't real, and Willa's the narrator and the good guy, so it's OK in the book!) and while that means they should have a perspective change, like I wrote, stealing is only OK because it's a book and it isn't real!
Oh, and Aidan! Such a complication in her life! But taught her some pretty helpful tips in her quest, so that was really great! And he seemed to genuinely care for her, so just can't wait to see how that's all going to play out!
Loved the mystery in it, because there was something strange of how her mom got the money and the sales of all those paintings, and how much she got for them. And that is probably going to be the big thing of the next book, seeing where this one ended!
Such a great, awesome, amazing book, and now I just really can't wait for more!
