Description

Robyn Loxley can't rest now that she's the #1 Most Wanted Fugitive, Robyn Hoodlum. The harsh Nott City governor, Ignomus Crown, may have increased the reward for her capture, but this won't stop Robyn from masterminding her biggest mission yet: infiltrating the governor's mansion to rescue her parents. The perfect opportunity arises when the Iron Teen contest comes to Sherwood. If Robyn scores high enough, she'll be invited to a dinner at the mansion. But performing well in the contest could put her directly in Crown's sights. Can she and her crew of misfit friends pull off such a grand scheme, or are they walking into bigger trouble than they can handle? Continuing her high-adventure Robin Hood reboot, National Book Award finalist Kekla Magoon delivers more action and intrigue, as this unforgettable heroine and her motley crew fight for justice.show more

A fast-paced, futuristic adventure tale that will have readers feeling as though they've been on a physical and emotional roller coaster." - Kirkus Reviews "Suspenseful and action-packed . . . Readers familiar with reality competition shows--and Hunger Games fans--will enjoy the Iron Teen element." - The Horn Book Magazine "A compelling reboot of the Robin Hood myth." - Rick Riordan, bestselling author of PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS on SHADOWS OF SHERWOOD "Thrilling. . . .

The adventure and cliffhanging ending will entice readers." - Kirkus Reviews on SHADOWS OF SHERWOOD "Magoon cleverly weaves elements of the Robin Hood tale into this futuristic story about social justice, friendship, and identity. The wily kid heroes and thrilling adventures will appeal to young readers." - Horn Book Magazine on SHADOWS OF SHERWOOD "Fans of the series will be satisfied with her character development and look forward to future titles." - School Library Connectionshow more
