Ocean's 11... with 11-year-olds, in a super stand-alone heist caper from Gordon Korman!

After a mean collector named Swindle cons him out of his most valuable baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Swindle's compound and recapture the card. There are many things standing in their way -- a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and their general inability to drive -- but Griffin and his team are going to get back what's rightfully his . . . even if hijinks ensue.
This is Gordon Korman at his crowd-pleasing best, perfect for readers who like to hoot, howl, and heist.

            In Swindle by Gordon Korman there is an abandoned house. The rockford house. The kids slept over night there. They wanted the town to turn it into a skate bored park.they woke up to a wreking ball crashing into the house. they found a base ball card on the way out. they broght it to a store and the man be hind the desk gave them 100$. Was that a rip off? I would recommend this book. It will never get boring. there is always something going on. the more you read the better it gets. If you read this one you will want to read the rest of the stories. Have fun reading.
