Synopsis

Stone Robbers by Tish Farrell

No wonder Rico hates his Mayan culture. His dad died fighting to keep the old ways. Now Rico and his sister Delfina must scratch a living selling clothes in San Pedro market. But it's hard when swindlers like Enzo try to cheat them. Rico means to kill Enzo, but then he makes a strange discovery - something from the Mayan past that could change everything. Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
