Stone Robbers by Tish Farrell


Stone Robbers by Tish Farrell

Rico's dad is dead, after a long fight to preserve his Mayan heritage. Now Rico hates everything to do with it. His family have been left extremely poor and his sister Delfina has to sell produce in the City to earn money to pay for their mother's medicine. Then swindler Enzo tries to cheat the family out of their hard-earned cash. Will Rico manage to get revenge? Stone Robbers is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant readers and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Stone Robbers is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9-10 years.
