Spotlight: The Pineville Heist by Lee Chambers

We're excited to be a part of the Pineville Heist Taking it to the Street Tour! If you haven't heard of The Pineville Heist read on to find out more about this awesome book that is soon to become a major motion picture starring Booboo Stewart. That's right people! Seth Clearwater!! (Seth was totally my favorite Twilight character!)

Aaron whipped through the long grass as fast as his legs would carry him. His eyes were filled with angst and adrenaline. He was still in shock. Not every day you see a dead man. Not every day you see that much money either – he glanced down at the backpack in his arms.

Must – keep – running

Seventeen year old Aaron stumbles into the aftermath of a five million dollar bank heist gone wrong. Hiding under a canoe, Aaron partially catches the murder of one of the robbers. In the chaos he sneaks away with the money and heads straight for the closest place of safety, his high school. Terrified, Aaron tells his shocking tale to Amanda Becker, his drama teacher, but it doesn't take long for one of the psychotic robbers to show up. In the locked down school the pair are relentlessly pursued in a quest to get the money back and wipe out the evidence.


Excerpt from The Pineville Heist:

Steve and Mike hurdled the canoe with ease, but Aaron panicked, curling into a ball as the figure jumped the canoe, his foot catching on the lip. In a second, the canoe flipped right over, totally exposing Aaron in his fetal position. 
Then another few seconds passed. A gunshot in the distance. Aaron opened his eyes. Nobody. They were all gone. 
Aaron unfurled himself and slowly found the will to stand up. At his feet, Jake had bled out. Something then caught Aaron’s eye, right out of the corner of his peripheral vision. Stuffed under the seat of the canoe. A green backpack.
