Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig $50 Giveaway and Promo

Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig

Book Summary:
Willa's secret plan seems all too simple.
Take from the rich kids at valley prep and give to the poor ones.
Yet Willa's turn as Robin Hood at her new high school is anything but. Bilking her "friends"—known to everyone as the Glitterati—without them suspecting a thing is far from easy. Learning how to break into lockers and Beemers is as hard as she'd thought it would be. Delivering care packages to the scholarship girls, who are bullied just for being different, is more fun than she'd expected.
The complication Willa didn't expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, VP's most notorious ace-degenerate. His mere existence is distracting Willa from what matters most to her—evening the social playing field between the haves and have-nots. There's no time for flirting, especially with conceited trust-funders like Aidan. But when the cops start investigating the string of thefts at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek revenge, could Aidan wind up being the person that Willa trusts most?
Elisa Ludwig's Pretty Crooked is the first book in an adventurous teen caper series filled with mystery, humor, and heart.
Here's a really cool book trailer:

What do you think of the Robin Hood idea? Taking from the rich to give to the poor?

It's been something that I have thought about and I don't think I have a really good answer personally, but I think that it's a neat idea for a book.

I think this is such a neat idea for a book. I just wonder what all will go wrong, but also who it will cheer up.
