Description of this Book

A life of crime - how hard can it be? A funny, filmic and fast-paced crime-caper. When fifteen-year-old Dylan accidentally burns down the house of the girl he's trying to impress, he feels that only a bold gesture can make it up to her. A gesture like robbing a bank to pay for her new home. Only an unwanted Saturday job, a tyrannical bank manager, and his unfinished history homework lie between Dylan and the heist of century. And really, what's the worst that could happen?A funny, filmic and ill-advised crime caper.
