The Lawless School provides the right education for kids on the wrong side of the law.

M Freeman has been homeschooled her entire life. So M has no idea just how unusual her education has been – not until she leaves home to attend the prestigious (and mysterious) Lawless School.

Suddenly, it’s very clear to M that her tutors have been preparing her all along for a life of crime. She excels at escape tactics. She’s a whiz at spotting forgeries. Her years of piano lessons pay off when picking pockets and cracking safes.

M’s newfound talent for criminal mischief soon brings her to the attention of the Masters, the secretive school’s most secretive clique. M’s interest in the Masters is personal – joining this international dishonor society is her best chance to learn the truth about her father’s life . . . and his death. But when her first real-world heist goes wrong, M is left wondering: Is there truly honor among thieves?

Jeffrey Salane’s first novel is full of twists and turns, reveals and reversals. Spoiling the ending for your friends would be criminal! – Goodreads

Review:

From the blurb and everything I heard about this book, this was a me book; however, at 30% I couldn’t continue to read, or care to finish. Which marks this as the second book I’ve DNF in a year. Based off the ARC, the writing was extremely weak and could do with many edits and spell checking. And yes, I understand that this was an ARC, but still, it could have been polished more than it was. Things also moved quickly in the book; almost too fast. It was like watching a movie with bad editing. It made my head hurt. I wanted to love this book, but in the end, I couldn’t even finish it.

Did you read this? Did you enjoy it? Please, tell me what I’m missing.
