From School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Mattie Larimore was always known as the good son compared to his brother, Carter. That is, until the day Mattie impulsively stole a train. Unfortunately for Mattie, he gets caught and sent to Munchem Academy, the reform school for juvenile delinquents that Carter attends. It is where Mattie's life of crime truly begins and where he learns the thrill of breaking the rules. At Munchem, Mattie befriends two siblings, Elliot and Caroline, both future criminal masterminds. Together, they find out what is really going on behind closed doors at the academy. The kids know Headmaster Rooney is up to no good when the worst kids in school start disappearing after committing various offenses, including Carter. When the students return, they are completely changed and act like model citizens, ready to return home to their families. The kids soon discover the shocking truth behind Rooney's nefarious plan. Though a bit long-winded in spots, this is overall an enjoyable read. Mattie is a relatable and likable protagonist, and readers will chuckle at his and his friends' antics. VERDICT Fans of Lemony Snicket will appreciate this humorous mystery.—Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY

There were times when a few errors missed by the editor appeared. This became a distraction and, at one point, confusing because the wrong character name was used during an exchange. A quick once over will fix these mistakes.
Overall, this was a fun story that kids will enjoy. I’m looking forward to the sequel.
I received the ebook from NetGalley for my honest opinion.
