Michael has been getting into trouble lately.

As a consequence, his mom is making him look after his grandfather for the summer. The thing is, Gramps isn’t your average senior citizen: he’s a retired burglar with a lifetime of criminal knowledge. When a thief breaks into Gramps' apartment and steals a necklace with great sentimental value, the unlikely pair team up, combining old-school planning and modern tech to track down the necklace—and try to steal it back.

This high-interest Orca Anchor title is written specifically for teens reading below a grade 2.0 level.

The epub edition of this title is fully accessible.

“Full of suspense and has a fast-moving plot, all packaged in its relatively short page length. The book is short, but not simplistic, and the content and themes are age-appropriate for teens. Highly Recommended.”
– CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Short sentences, generous line spacing, and amped-up pacing combine to ease reluctant teen readers into this tongue-in-cheek caper…A clever variation on the theme of intergenerational connections.”
