Teaser Tuesday (79): Coin Heist by Elisa Ludwig

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Coin Heist by Elisa Ludwig. It reminds me a little of the movie The Perfect Score with Chris Evans. Group of kids with different social statuses come together to commit a robbery and become friends in the process. Even though the premise of Coin Heist seems like it could be cheesy, the multiple narrators pull you into their lives making teenagers robbing the Mint seem like a necessity not a joke. It's a short, light read, but I love each of the narrators so much! I picked this quote because it made me snort,. Possibly the best use of the word bimbo I've ever read, and it's about a guy! Plus it's FREE as of this post, so go get a copy for yourself right now!

I'd never really seen this side of him before. "That's actually pretty thoughtful."

"You sound surprised," he said.

Because you act like a bimbo sometimes?

{Coin Heist, Chapter 9}

Synopsis of Coin Heist:

The last place you’d expect to find a team of criminals is at a prestigious Philadelphia prep school. But on a class trip to the U.S. Mint – which prints a million new coins every 30 minutes – an overlooked security flaw becomes far too tempting for a small group of students to ignore.

United by dire circumstances, these unlikely allies – the slacker, the nerd, the athlete, and the "perfect" student – band together to attempt the impossible: rob the U.S. Mint. The diverse crew is forced to confront their true beliefs about each other and themselves as they do the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Elisa Ludwig's Coin Heist is a fun, suspenseful, and compelling thriller, told from the revolving perspectives of four teens, each with their own motive for committing a crime that could change all of their lives for the better—if they can pull it off.
