In Swindle by Gordon Korman, an evil collector cons Griffin out of a million-dollar baseball card so he unites a ragtag group of his classmates to take down the swindler. It’s a valiant adventure that will take them through a daring heist, a vicious dog, crazy inventions, and a superb acting performance, but throughout it all, the kids have to bring their skills together as a team to get justice. Swindle is the perfect combination of action and adventure, but it is also funny and true-to-life at the same time.
There are 5 other books in the Swindle series: Zoobreak, Framed, Showoff, Hideout, and Jackpot. And . . .did you know there is a movie version, too? 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!
And to get even more psyched, play the Swindle Spot the Difference Game. (I only got 3 out of 9. This game is IMPOSSIBLE!)
