The Great Greene Heist/Varian Johnson by Scholastic Corporation/Arthur A. Levine books
The Great Greene Heist by Varian Johnson is a hilarious new novel about a diverse group of middle school students who scheme up a plan to win a school election. With high-octane hijinks and highly likable characters, this novel reads like Ocean’s Eleven for tweens.
Why we like it: Readers will enjoy Johnson’s ensemble of characters. This book is a fun and fast-paced caper. It fills a need for more stories set in middle school and for more stories featuring people of color.
