Have you read the book Swindle by Gordon Korman? I LOVE that book! It was one of my top 5 books in 2008 when it came out, and since then, Korman has written 4 other books in the series: Zoobreak, Framed, Showoff, and Hideout.
So. . . .yeah, I’m excited for the Nickelodeon original TV movie, Swindle, premiering Saturday, Aug. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Plus, look’s who’s in it: Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande from Sam & Cat; Noah Crawford and Chris O’Neal from How to Rock; Ciara Bravo from Big Time Rush; and iCarly’s Noah Munck! How can it not be fun?
In Swindle, an evil collector cons Griffin (played by Crawford) out of a million-dollar baseball card that could have saved his best friend’s (played by O’Neal) home, so he unites a ragtag group of his classmates (McCurdy, Grande, Bravo, and Munck) to take down the swindler. It’s a valiant adventure that will take them through daring heists, crazy disguises, and a pie fight face-off, but throughout it all, the kids have to bring their skills together as a team to get justice. The book is fast-paced and funny, and I am so curious to see if the movie will be as good.
Are you a Swindle fan? Will you be watching the movie? Let us know in the Comments.
