Read + Review: Thieving Weasels by Billy Taylor

thieving weasels

When Skipper O’Rourke runs away from his criminal family, he thinks he will never encounter them again. But in his senior year at Wheaton Preparatory Academy, and in love with the girl of his dreams, his crazy family comes back. He had just been accepted into Princeton University and his future seemed bright. Now his family threatens to take all of that away if he doesn’t do an important job for them. Will he do it, or risk all the things and people he loves in his life?

I think this book was great! I loved the way his life takes twists and turns as time goes by. It really made the book more interesting. I also liked how many of the characters had so many different identities. It made it a challenge to keep up with all of them.

I will remember how awful his life was at one time and how he had to deal with the challenges of moving every month, not having enough money, and being treated so badly by people in his own family.
