Loot

For almost two years, Loot has been my go-to recommendation when a student is looking for a mysterious adventure novel. I was thrilled to see that there was a sequel, called Sting.

March, his sister Jules, and their friends thought they had retired from their lives as teen criminals. That is, until they are swindled and lose everything they have. The only way out is to hunt down three cursed gems, but there are other thieves who want the same prize, including one that they know very well.

Sting doesn't stray much from the plot of Loot, but that was so good that it's worth living again. The stakes are higher and there is more action, so young readers won't get bored. Rather, they'll be like my student who wanted to know if there would be a third book. There's always hope!
