By now you probably know I’m a fan of a good fairy tale retelling. I love seeing an author mix classic stories with newer or modern plot points and I’m pretty much always interested in a book that does this. So, when I heard about Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig I was definitely intrigued!
Here’s the summary:
Willa’s secret plan seems all too simple: take from the rich kids at Valley Prep and give to the poor ones. Yet Willa’s turn as Robin Hood at her ultra-exclusive high school is anything but. Bilking her “friends”-known to everyone as the Glitterati-without them suspecting a thing, is far from easy. Learning how to pick pockets and break into lockers is as difficult as she’d thought it’d be. Delivering care packages to the scholarship girls, who are ostracized just for being from the “wrong” side of town, is way more fun than she’d expected.
The complication Willa didn’t expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, Valley Prep’s most notorious (and gorgeous) ace-degenerate. His mere existence is distracting Willa from what matters most to her-evening the social playing field between the have and have-nots. There’s no time for crushes and flirting with boys, especially conceited and obnoxious trust-funders like Aidan. But when the cops start investigating the string of burglaries at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek revenge, could he wind up being the person that Willa trusts most?
I think it looks like a really cute take on Robin Hood! Let’s go ahead and let the book trailer speak for itself!
Pretty Crooked has been in stores and libraries for about a month now, so go out and get it!
