A modern-day Robin Hood by a New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author!

Robbie Forester has learned the hard way that life isn't fair. So have her friends Ashanti, Silas and Tut-Tut. But Robbie and her friends--who call themselves the Outlaws of Sherwood Street--want to change that.


When Sheldon Gun, an evil business man, ends up killing Silas's father so he can build a new apartment complex in Brooklyn, the Outlaws know it's up to them to make Sheldon Gun pay. With street smarts, Silas's inventions, and a little help from a charm bracelet, these friends know they can take on Sheldon Gun and win--at least, they hope so.  If not, they may end up just like Silas's dad.  This story is filled with action, adventure, social justice and great friends--and is especially relevant during our current economy and the rise of the Occupy Everywhere movement. Perfect for fans of young detectives like Nancy Drew, Enola Holmes, and Gilda Joyce.
 

Peter Abrahams, who also writes the Chet & Bernie mysteries as Spencer Quinn, is the award-winning and best-selling author of the Echo Falls series as well as teen novels  Reality Check and Bullet Point .  His adult novel, The Fan , was turned into a feature film starring Robert DeNiro and Wesley Snipes.  Stephen King has called Abrahams "my favorite American suspense novelist."
