Thirteen-year old Nell begins to rob banks with her friends in order to pay for renovations to her foster home.

Orca Book Publishers
Thirteen-year old Nell and her friends are robbing banks to raise money for renovations in their foster home.
Nell has been in foster homes all her life—most of them have been horrible. She finally gets moved to a home she likes, and the ministry threatens to close it down unless an expensive renovation is made to the house. Nell and the two boys in the home, Billy and Tom, decide to raise the funds themselves. How do kids get large amounts of money quickly? By robbing banks, of course. Their first few heists are successful, but when they almost get caught on their sixth robbery, the friends start to fight about whether they should continue. The bank jobs that were meant to keep their family together just might tear it apart.
