"The Lawless School provides the right education for kids on the wrong side of the law.

M Freeman has been homeschooled her entire life. So M has no idea just how unusual her education has been - not until she leaves home to attend the prestigious (and mysterious) Lawless School.

Suddenly, it's very clear to M that her tutors have been preparing her all along for a life of crime. She excels at escape tactics. She's a whiz at spotting forgeries. Her years of piano lessons pay off when picking pockets and cracking safes.

M's newfound talent for criminal mischief soon brings her to the attention of the Masters, the secretive school's most secretive clique. M's interest in the Masters is personal - joining this international dishonor society is her best chance to learn the truth about her father's life . . . and his death. But when her first real-world heist goes wrong, M is left wondering: Is there truly honor among thieves?"

So..... this book was alright I guess.... It was massively different from other spy books I've read- It was like The Gallaghers Girls and Heist Society mashed up together so yeah....

I basically found the plot very unoriginal... the main girl has a very famous parent in the 'spy world' and they're missing, presumed dead or actually dead and most of the time, the girl is talented at everything etc etc... Furthermore, the good guy is always the bad guy... quite predictable...

Although I expressed all that negativity above, I am a sucker for all these type of books and they always fail to bore me. I love the secret school thing that teaches you how to hack into computers and stuff - and yes.... I would love to be in that school. It's my dream.............heh heh heh


Anyways.... the book was alright I guess, nothing special and I kind of enjoyed it (especially when the team went to Dulwich Gallery place in London which is near to my house.... Don't Stalk Me!!!!!

Quite a short review mainly because I don't really know what else to say but tata!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
