Waiting on Wednesday: Sting by Jude Watson

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

Saw this on FB and found this link:

Sting by Jude Watson. Scholastic Inc., September, 2016.

Synopsis: Rule number one for cat burglars is: Never do a favor for a friend. So why is thirteen-year-old March McQuin dangling upside-down twenty feet above a stone floor in the middle of the night? Along with his twin sister jules, he's set on stealing a set of stunning diamonds. It should have been an easy job, in and out. Except another thief got there first. March and Jules are lucky to escape with their lives, and one measly stone.

Now the botched heist has created a world of trouble. The stone they grabbed was the Morning Star, one of a trio of famous sapphires, and it's cursed. The theft puts the twins and their friends in the crosshairs of Interpol, the FBI, and a vicious adult gang of international criminals known as the Top Cat gang. And worst of all, the only way to break the curse and set everything to rights is by pulling off two more impossible heists...and stealing the other two sapphires in the set.

I really enjoyed Loot and look forward to this sequel.
