Pretty Bad Things, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Sixteen-year old twins in Candy-Store crime spree twins, Paisley and Beau Argent are in the headlines again.

Last time, they were the 'wonder twins', when as six-year-olds they were found alive in woods after three days missing following their mother's death - three days spent looking for their dad.

Now at sixteen, life's not so wonderful. Out-cast and exploited by their money-grabbing grandmother they're still clueless about their dad's whereabouts - until they discover an old letter from him.

That's when they decide to hit the road - and make headlines again.

Holding up fast-food joints in Las Vegas might seem extreme but if they can get on the news, and tell their dad they need him, they might get the dream reunion they never thought could happen.

This book is ingenious! It really is amazing and has just the right amount of sentimentality.
