Non-Fiction YA Book - Scams!
My daughter brought home a non-fiction young adult book from the library a few days ago called Scams! (True Stories from the Edge). It had an interesting War of the Worlds cover image, so I thought I'd give it a little look-see. Well, within a few minutes I was enthralled, and a few hours later, I was done reading it. The book is full of exciting and unique true stories about the world's greatest scam artists - deceivers who pull off the most fantastic plots and the mass of people that fall for it. I really like stories of this nature, and the author, Andres Schroeder, has produced a well-written and entertaining book. There are several more books in the series, and I can't wait to check them out.
