URBAN OUTLAWS, by Peter Jay Black

Urban outlaws

The story: Five kids live in a hidden bunker under the streets of London. They’re the Urban Outlaws, orphans living off the grid, each one using their special abilities to get away with Random Acts of Kindness while staying one step ahead of their enemies–the people whose money they’ve stolen to finance their good deeds. But when they “transfer” a cool million from criminal mastermind Del Sarto, it doesn’t take long before they realize that this time, they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a story whose heroes model themselves on Robin Hood: they specialize in stealing money from bad guys and using it for good causes. If you like action and adventure, this book is one wild caper after another, featuring lots of cool techno-gadgets. and close escapes.  If you like the Alex Rider series, or Jude Watson’s “Loot”, you’ll like this one too!
