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 nerd, the slacker, the athlete, and the perfect student - band together to attempt the impossible: rob the U.S. Mint. This 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 will change all of their lives - if they can pull it off.

Quickie Review

Coin Heist was such a fun read.  It’s like Ocean’s Eleven for teens. I never would have thought this group of kids could take on the task of robbing the US Mint. The planning they do is insanely detailed and time consuming. It made my brain hurt trying to keep up. But it was entertaining.

I didn’t really care for or connect with some of the characters, but that’s to be expected in a group as diverse as this one.  Overall, it’s a quick listen with multiple points of view.
