A Rivets Short Story

Publisher: Franklin Watts Ltd

13-year-old Adaq and sister Maya make a slick team of 'lifters', stealing wallets from unsuspecting strangers in order to survive. When Adaq has second thoughts about his life of crime, Maya convinces him to do one last job. But the job is much more dangerous than Adaq realises, and he is soon involved way over his head.

The fact that Lifters was originally conceived by Joe Craig as an idea for a movie is evident in the short but action packed chapters, crammed with snappy dialogue and thrilling twists.

At just 64 pages this title in the Edge series is ideal for children who may lack confidence and stamina around reading.
