Description

Book four of The Law Game brings us a classic caper where the hero must learn be the bad guy in order to be the good guy.

Mikala Flynn is a teenage army brat who’s drifting through life after having been forced to relocate from Florida to New York City to live with her grandmother. She’s fighting demons of her past and struggling to deal with the murder of her military officer father, who was killed during a home invasion.

While at a sleepover, Flynn spots an objet d’art that looks strikingly like a priceless family heirloom made by Flynn’s great-grandfather during World War II and was later stolen when her father was killed.

Flynn must juggle her desperate desire to get her hands on the off-limits artifact with the deeply imbedded sense of integrity and honor her father instilled in her. Can she find out if it’s the missing heirloom without getting busted elbow-deep in the art-filled cookie jar? The next morning, a certain Tuesday in 2001, changes absolutely everything. Welcome to the Evolution of an Art Thief.

    Its the summer of 2001. Flynn, a teenager who works part time at a pizza shop, often accompanies her Grandmother, Tubbs, to art events. While at one of the events a classmate, Kate, steals her away from the boring adults. They are now best friends but why, Flynn asks herself again and again, does she feel so funny when Kate touches her? She is also floundering about her future, it seems to her that everyone else knows what their plans in life are why doesn’t she? So many questions, so few answers until a fateful day in mid-September….

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I loved the character of Flynn. She is so real, she could be any young lesbian on the verge of womanhood. She has challenges in life but takes them in stride. She is lovable, nerdy, goofy and engaging. Kate is full of wonder and dreams although she seems resigned to her fate.

    The story itself is wonderfully written without a flaw, no editing mistakes or plot errors, you have to love that!! The descriptions of the settings and characters were really in depth but not overwhelming and they do not distract from the book. You can almost see what Ms Chandler paints with her words. This is a great quick read and I can not wait to read the others in the series.

    Hmm. This one is hard to review because while I found the writing good, it seems kind of disjointed. First of all, what does the title of the book have to do with the story? When/if you read it, you’ll see what I mean. I would say this was more of a coming of age story more than anything. Yes, there are some interesting mentions about art, but nothing that really alludes to the evolution of an art thief per say.

    It’s also very short, I don’t know if this was done to introduce a part two or not. I also feel it’s disjointed because it felt like it was going somewhere at times, but never makes its destination. It does tell us what it was like for these teens experiencing life prior to 911, but again, it abruptly ends once the towers are hit. I guess that’s because the author felt there was no more to say?
    I can appreciate the author’s dedication in the beginning of the book for the teen that succumbed to bullying and the words she mentioned about speaking out about bullying. That I felt was heartfelt, but this book feels like it should be more.
