A hilarious, filmic and fast-paced crime-caper by 2019's funniest new voice in teen fiction, ideal for readers aged 11 and up.

Some people rob banks because they're greedy. Others enjoy the adrenalin rush. Me? I robbed a bank because of guilt. Specifically: guilt and a Nepalese scented candle...
When fifteen-year-old Dylan accidentally burns down the house of the girl he's trying to impress, he feels that only a bold gesture can make it up to her. A gesture like robbing a bank to pay for her new home.
Only an unwanted Saturday job, a tyrannical bank manager, and his unfinished history homework lie between Dylan and the heist of century. And really, what's the worst that could happen?
A funny, cinematic, ill-advised comedy-crime adventure perfect for gamers, heist movie fans, and anyone who loves a laugh.

"Ask yourself - do I need the money? Robbing a bank isn't something to do to pass the time, like kicking footballs over the neighbour's fence or reading."
