Holdup by Terri Fields

A great quick YA read. Told from multiple perspectives, Holdup details a robbery at Burger Heaven in four parts. First you read about the Saturday shift workers, second the planning by the robbers, then the robbery and finally a follow up one year later.

It’s a fascinating little book and would be great for discussion. Despite the nine different main characters, each character is complete and complex.

At 163 pages it’s a perfect read for a summer day, as the action moves steadily along and you want to find out what happens to each character.
