I loved this book. With so many brilliant characters, it's only natural for this book to have a complex plot full of many twists and turns. The characters are witty and humorous and have many surprises up their sleeves. Rather than being a typical "kill or be killed" kind of book, How to Lead a Life of Crime shows us what happens when characters refuse to play by the rules.

"Mandel Academy: the elite training ground for the next generation of criminal masterminds. With a student body of drug dealers, hackers, thieves, and assassins, it’s “Hogwarts for hustlers”… and if teen pickpocket Flick can only survive there until graduation, he can finally take down his evil father (a Mandel grad) for his brother’s murder. However, Flick's revenge plans are sidelined, when his girlfriend Joi is enrolled at Mandel as well. Can the two cooperate to protect each other, or will the vicious competition and deadly treachery of the school destroy them? Find out in this fast-moving, unpredictable, and intriguingly gruesome page-turner."
