From the Inside Flap:

Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor takes on a whole new meaning--If Robin hadn't just paid off the Ninth Street Rangers, or if Tyrone and Dodo hadn't hit on him to do their schoolwork, he never would have done what he was about to do.

From Booklist:

In this reluctant-reader-ready series opener, 14-year-old Robin feels squeezed at every turn. At school, two bullies force him to write their essays for them. At home, Gramma is paying out money she doesn’t have to keep her business, the Shrimp Shack, from being ransacked by the local gang, the Ninth Street Rangers. The only place where Robin feels safe, the local community center, is about to be shut down unless $25,000 can be raised in a week. It’s a dire situation all around until Robin spies a gang member hiding a package. Robin digs it out only to find $25,000 in cash. So there’s one problem solved by taking from the evil rich and giving to the deserving poor—so why not another problem? Though the abrupt plot developments strain credulity at times, Gottesfeld has a firm grip on urban anxieties and sprinkles his accelerated prose with effective vernacular: When I talk wit’ yo’ boy, it won’t happen no mo’. This is a quick read, so have the two simultaneously published sequels, Chopped and The Bank of Badness, ready to roll. Grades 5-8. --Daniel Kraus
