I really enjoyed Loot, which reminded me why a good heist is one of my favorite sub-genres of action/adventure. I need to read the next book, which is called Sting. The Lotterys Plus One warmed my heart in a lot of ways: big family, homeschool, and multi-generational household. The quirk to raise is that the parents of the Lottery household are two couples (M/M, F/F) who have adopted most of their children. N. D. Wilson’s The Chestnut King brings a big finish to his 100 Cupboards trilogy, which takes portal fantasy to giddy heights. Smart and lyrical.
