Description: SIXTEEN-YEAR OLD TWINS IN CANDY-STORE CRIME SPREE!
Twins, Paisley and Beau Argent are in the headlines again. Last time, they were the 'wonder twins', when, as six-year-olds, they were found alive in woods after three days missing following their mother’s death – three days spent looking for their dad.
Now at sixteen, life’s not so wonderful. Cast out and exploited by their money-grabbing grandmother, they’re still clueless about their dad’s whereabouts. Until they discover an old letter from him.
That’s when they decide to hit the road – and make headlines again. Holding up fast-food joints in Las Vegas might seem extreme but if they can get on the news, and tell their dad they need him, they might just get the dream reunion they never thought could happen.
Billed as a darkly-comic ‘Tarantino for teens’ – this is a fast, fearless and funny first novel. Wild, crazy, outspoken and unleashed in March 2010.
I likely would've never heard of this novel if I didn't do a search on youtube to find a trailer for Trailer Tuesday. I have to say, this sounds like a pretty creative piece! Pretty Bad Things will be released in March 2010.
