DANGER: ROBBERY IN PROGRESS

Police are uncertain how many hostages are being held.

Its an ordinary Saturday night for the teens working at Burger Heaven—until, suddenly, guns are drawn and threats made. Jordans just working here part-time, after school, but shes suddenly put in charge when the manager has to leave. Joe has never even gotten so much as an after-school detention. So how is it that this Saturday night, hes at Burger Heaven, waving a loaded gun, yelling at the employees to get down on the floor NOW! Dylan has always succeeded at his twisted plans—until this Saturday, this robbery, where everything has gone wrong. And now, surrounded by police outside, Dylans life will never be the same—and neither will the lives of his hostages.

About the Author

Ms. Fields loves doing author visits, and has been invited to schools throughout the US, as well as Morocco and Japan. Her newest book, My Fathers Son, is available now from Roaring Brook Press.
 
The idea for the setting of Holdup came after hearing many of her students talk about working in fast-food restaurants.
