Nell has been in foster homes all her life -- most of them have been horrible. She finally gets moved to a home she likes, and the ministry threatens to close it down unless an expensive renovation is made to the house. Nell and the two boys in the home, Billy and Tom, decide to raise the funds themselves. How do kids get large amounts of money quickly? By robbing banks, of course. Their first few heists are successful, but when they almost get caught on their sixth robbery, the friends start to fight about whether they should continue. The bank jobs that were meant to keep their family together just might tear it apart.

HOW lONg càN nEll àNd hEr friENds rOB BàNKs BEfOrE thEy gEt càught? My stomach lurched with dread. I felt like throwing up.I couldn’t believe I was doing this. Crazy. Chest thumping, I hurried into the bank and stood at anatmin the bank vestibule. There was no lineup inside the bank. I counted two customers and two women tellers. Billy headed toward the younger of the two tellers, the one closest to me. His rain jacket was zipped up over his chin. He passed a note across the counter. ThIs Is a bank robberY. YoU Won’T geT hUrT IF YoU Do as YoU’re TolD. I knew what the note said because I had written it.
