The Crims by Kate Davies (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)by McNally Robinson - Saturday, Dec 23, 2017 at 6:32pm
The Crims are a criminal family. Imogen is a Crim but she gave up on crime, and went to Lilyworth Ladies’ College. Just when she is about to say her speech to become head girl, she gets expelled because someone wrote a letter saying that Imogen came from a criminal family. Also, because it's known that the Crims got arrested for stealing a very expensive lunch box. Imogen thinks that the Crims are innocent, she also thinks they are hopeless without Big Nana, the only successful Crim. The headmistress agrees to let Imogen back in the school if she proves that her family is innocent. Will Imogen prove that her family is innocent? Find out by reading The Crims.
I liked this book because it was a mystery. You really want to know what happens next. I think the Crims are also funny, for instance they like being in jail. I give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The Addams Family meets Despicable Me in the first book of this new trilogy, perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket and Pseudonymous Bosch!The Crim family is full of notorious criminals. Notoriously inept, that is. Uncle Knuckles once tried to steal a carnival. Great-Uncle Bernard held himself hostage by accident. Aunt Drusilla died slipping on a banana peel. But Imogen is different. She was born with a skill for scandal. A knack for the nefarious. A mastery of misdemeanors.Despite her natural talent for all things unlawful, Imogen got out of the family business years ago. But when the rest of the Crims are accused of pulling off a major heist--which seems doubtful, to say the least--Imogen is forced to step in to clear their names. Because only a truly skilled criminal can prove the bumbling family's innocence....
