The Pineville Heist

The Pineville Heist - Lee Chambers Review 7*******I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.This is an exciting and thrilling YA novel that is a real page turner!Aaron Stevens is a typical teenager, but living in the small town of Pineville is not easy for him, especially as his father is the main employer in a town suffering in tough economic times.He goes through huge emotional growth in this story. I loved his character development; he is challenged to use his wits, and his bravery makes him into a wonderful man.As I read this story, I was completely swept away with the action and danger! I could actually "see" it all unfold in my mind's eye. Originally a screenplay, Lee Chambers then decided to turn it into a book. Turning a book into a screenplay for a movie is one thing, but engineering a screenplay into a book is a completely different kettle of fish! I think that Lee Chambers has done a fantastic job! This book is full to the brim with descriptions of characters and places that make the reader feel like they are actually there, standing on the sidelines, watching the events unfold. When I heard about it being made into a movie, I became very excited! The movie is set to go into production in the Spring of 2013, starring Booboo Stewart (Seth Clearwater from Twilight) as Aaron. I know that films cannot show everything written in books due to time or logistical reasons, but I'm fairly certain, in this case, that they will follow the storyline to it's exciting conclusion. I'm looking forward to watching it!This is Lee Chambers debut novel, but because of his screenwriting and directing past, it is wonderfully executed. I am adding him to my list of favourite authors, and will read any of his books in the future.If you are looking for a fantastic YA Thriller full of action and danger, then I highly recommend this book! - Lynn Worton (WaAR)
