Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief (Yearling Books)by Wendelin Van Draanen
Synopses & Reviews
Sammy's perusing the neighborhood with some high-powered binoculars when she spots something strange across the street at the Heavenly Hotel. A man with his hand in a pocketbook. And he's wearing gloves. Sammy's adjusting the focus while the man's stuffing a wad of cash into his pocket and looking furtively around the room. Then he looks out the window straight at Sammy. So what does she do? She waves.
Sammy's supposed to he keeping a low profile if anyone finds out that she lives with her Grandmother in government-assisted housing for the elderly they'll be evicted but now she finds herself chatting with the police on a regular basis, trying to find the thief before he finds her, trying to explain to her grandmother how she managed to get suspended on the first day of school, and trying to prove to the vice principal that she didn't really break Heather Acosta's nose. Maybe the second week of school will be better.
While scanning the neighborhood with binoculars, Sammy spots something strange at the Heavenly Hotel. A man in one room is wearing gloves and rummaging through a purse.
