Reviews

Praise for To Catch a Cheat "Readers will have a great time picking up allusions to 'Star Wars, ' 'Star Trek, ' superheroes and 'Ocean's Twelve' as they follow an intiguingly twisty plot... Here's hoping Gang Greene returns soon in another adventure that surprises, delights and expands the possibilities of the caper mystery." -- The Washington Post * "An intricate plot, fast-paced action, short chapters, and changing perspectives characterize this smartly structured tale... A satisfying stand-alone sequel." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "This sequel is even better than the first book... It has more depth and character development, and the plot is complex and engaging... Those who enjoy realistic fiction with action, mystery, and humor will have a hard time putting this novel down." -- School Library Journal "Sheer fun." -- The Horn Book Magazine Praise for The Great Greene Heist "It's a thrilling ride that may con reluctant readers into settling down on the couch with books like The Great Greene Heist instead of the remote control." -- The New York Times * "It's refreshing to read a story about middle-school life that's smart, complicated, and funny, with a cleverly constructed plot and a sweet relationship between a boy and a girl. ... The lively (and racially diverse) cast of characters and the intricate plot will make this a story to read again for the sheer fun of it all." -- The Horn Book Magazine, starred review * "The elaborate bait and switch of this fast-paced, funny caper novel will surprise its readers as much as the victims." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Like all entertaining heist tales, The Great Greene Heist assembles a motley crew of characters, each with their own specialty. . . . Varian Johnson keeps the pace lively and the 'Star Trek references flying." -- Austin American-Statesman
