Summary

A boy decides to rob a bank after he accidently burns down the house of his crush with a scented candle.

Some people rob banks because they're greedy. Others enjoy the adrenalin rush. Me? I robbed a bank because of guilt. Specifically: guilt and a Nepalese scented candle.

When fifteen-year-old Dylan burns down the house of the girl he's trying to impress, he thinks only a big gesture can make it up to her - a gesture like robbing a bank.

An unwanted Saturday job, a prying older sister and his unfinished history homework are all that lie between Dylan and the heist of the century. Really, what's the worst that could happen?

NOTE : As well as the attempted crimes (which don't come to much), the book includes some mild swearing and minor sexual references. There are a lot of pop culture references that will probably date quickly.
