      Gangsta Granny was a emotional, funny and an enjoyable book. It was about a boy named Jack who was 12 years old and he always stayed at his granny's bungalow every Saturday. Granny was a lady who STINKED of cabbage and always enjoyed putting cabbage as a ingredient in every meal and playing scrabble. Ben hated to stay there but his granny had a secret... She wasn't a normal, boring person, she was a international crown jewel thief. This book was so good! Definitely a book to read!

            It's ok in a way but it didn't really work for me. I'd like to read it again but to me it's a 3star book. For now I'm going to stick with Harry potter.
