School Library Journal - 09/01/2017 Gr 4–6—Imogen Crim is trying to escape her family's legacy of bumbling criminal activity. She has gotten clean, changed her name, and is trying to restart her life at Lilyworth Ladies College. But when her family takes credit for a major heist, Imogen is expelled. She sets out to prove her family didn't commit the crime—after all, there's no way her small-time crook relatives could have planned and executed something so complex. However, proving their innocence is not going to be easy. This series opener is filled with unique, memorable characters. The mix of sophisticated wordplay and gut-busting potty humor will attract a wide range of readers. VERDICT Hand this to fans of Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" or Eoin Colfer's "Artemis Fowl" series.—Patrick Tierney, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, Providence - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
