What I’m Reading Wednesday’s!

Hello everyone! Today I am finally doing What I’m Reading Wednesday’s. If you are unfamiliar with this weekly event, I suggest that you check out the link here. The books I am showing in this post this week I finished reading recently.

The first book is called The Great Greene Heist by Varian Johnson. This book was featured in my Library Book Haul.



Jackson Greene became famous for the Shakedown in Shimmering Hills and everyone still talks about the Blitz at the Fitz. After Principal Kelsey caught him in his office, Jackson swore he wouldn’t do any scheming anymore for good. Then Keith Sinclair-the loser of the Blitz-announces he’s running for school president against Jackson’s former almost girlfriend, Gabriela de la Cruz. Gaby has been mad at Jackson since his last con and refuses to let him get involved with her election. Jackson knows that Keith has connections with Principal Kelsey, who could win him the election whatever the vote count. Jackson assembles a team of talented troublemakers. Hashemi  the tech genius. Victor Cho, bankroll. Bradley Boardman, artist. Megan Fieldman, science goddess and cheerleader. And Charlie de la Cruz, reporter. Together, they create a plan that will take down Keith, win Gaby’s respect, and make sure the election is done right! This big con could  only be called The Great Greene Heist.

The second book is called Vet Volunteers #12 End of the Race by Laurie Halse Anderson . Since I have included this author so many times, I will be doing facts about her hometown instead of herself.


Maggie learns about dog racing when an injured greyhound is brought into the clinic. She goes to the track with her grandma Dr. Mackenzie and another Vet Volunteer to check out the conditions of the dogs. It’s risky, but it will be worth it if they can save these greyhounds!
