Con Academy

December 18, 2016

Author: Jo Schreiber.


Will Shea is completing his senior year at one of the most elite prep schools on the continent. The catch? He doesn’t belong there – conning their way into things is a family specialty, and this is only Will’s latest exploit. It’s just bad luck that he picked this particular school, for it already has a resident con artist, Andrea, and she isn’t interested in sharing the school.

In proper thieving tradition, the show-down will be a massive con – played on non other than Brandt, a billionaire’s heir and a student with power. But as they race to be the first to Brandt’s money, they’re not holding back on the tricks and twists. There can only be one con artist here… or will they mutually expose each other?

My Thoughts:

A short, kind of funny read. I wasn’t super impressed though; I never really liked either of the main characters, and the ending wasn’t very strong.

Content Review:

Sexual content: Character says boy sneaked camera into a girl’s room – posted pictures of her on facebook to humiliate her. Some kissing.

Language: 3 scatological terms, 2 hell, 1 derogatory term

Violence: One boy hits another across the face with a lacrosse stick. Bully jumps up and down ontop of a kid.

Other issues: One adult is drunk for a period. The ‘con artists’ operate with a certain disregard for usual morals (you know, such as no stealing) and are not completely reformed by the end of the book.
