Oceans 11 Meets Breakfast Club?? (A Chance To Win The Book + Gift Card)




When I first heard about Elisa Ludwig’s newest novel, Coin Heist, I was immediately smitten — especially because it’s set in my city. And then when I saw the Oceans 11 meets Breakfast Club comparison I was like WOAH. I LIKE THOSE THINGS. Then I saw the summary and I was very, very excited! If you don’t know what it’s about check out the summary for yourself:

Coin Heist Elisa LudwigThe last place you’d expect to find a team of criminals is at a prestigious Philadelphia prep school. But on a class trip to the U.S. Mint – which prints a million new coins every 30 minutes – an overlooked security flaw becomes far too tempting for a small group of students to ignore.

United by dire circumstances, these unlikely allies – the slacker, the nerd, the athlete, and the “perfect” student – band together to attempt the impossible: rob the U.S. Mint. The diverse crew is forced to confront their true beliefs about each other and themselves as they do the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Elisa Ludwig’s Coin Heist is a fun, suspenseful, and compelling thriller, told from the revolving perspectives of four teens, each with their own motive for committing a crime that could change all of their lives for the better—if they can pull it off.

About The Author:

Elisa always knew she wanted to be a writer, when she was nine, she founded her own newspaper, The Elisa Bulletin, which she printed on her dot matrix computer and sold for 10 cents. She covered a range of stories from the Rubik Cube trend to reviews of Duran Duran albums. Her focus changed when she took a creative writing course in college and she was able to hone her craft of “making stuff up”. During a workshop, the author Julia Glass recognized Elisa’s innate ability to channel the teen experience and suggested she write YA. Since then, she’s never looked back and couldn’t be happier. Aside from writing, Elisa enjoys making ice cream, biking, Cape Cod, Scrabble, and flea markets. She lives outside Philadelphia, PA. She is the acclaimed writer of Pretty Sly and Pretty Crooked.

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. I enjoy: honesty, snark, and the ability to joy quiet.

  2. Stephani says:

    My BFF and I have been together for nearly 30 years. We met in the spring after I moved into the neighborhood. She was walking her dog, a Doberman, which I hadn’t seen before. So I went up and talked to her about the dog. We have been close ever since! We are often mistaken for siblings.
    If I had to find a new/another best friend, he or she would have to be able to pull me out of my shell, get approved by my nieces, and feel like family.

  3. A potential BFF would have to be fun, loyal, & smart enough to have a good intellectual conversation with me.

  4. Christina R. says:

    I’d love a friend to be kind and funny and supportive 🙂

    Thank you 🙂

  5. I’ve had several best friends. A BFF growing up, one in high school, and one in college. My college BFF were roomies and we’ve stayed friends the longest, seeing each other go through a lot and change as people. I think when you stay friends through all that, you know it’s a true friendship.

  6. I’ve got this book on my read/review list for the next month, and I’m looking forward to it! I hadn’t read the Oceans/Breakfast Club reference, but it definitely makes me think that this book is right up my alley 🙂

  7. This book sounds like so much fun! I can’t wait to read it. 🙂
