IN THE PRESS

Genre-savvy, clever, and full of "Heist Rules" like "If questioned, be evasive" and "Play to your crew's strengths," Don't Get Caught's twisty tale is funny, fast-paced, and full of surprises.

Pop culture references, short chapters, and laugh-out-loud narrative moments make Don't Get Caught an additional purchase for reluctant readers or fans of films like The Perfect Score.

Funny, clever, and playful, this debut is an enjoyable romp that pairs high-stakes cons with a ragtag gang of highschool misfits.
