Outrun the mob while solving the greatest art heist in history? No problem! The summer after 8th grade, Moxie learns that her grandfather, who now has Alzheimer’s, was involved in the theft by hiding the paintings for a notorious mobster, Sully Cupcakes. Sully is recently out of jail and wants the paintings, but Moxie’s grandfather can’t remember where they are. Moxie and her friend Ollie need to find them before Sully comes after her grandfather. The kids travel all over Boston following clues and evading mobsters until they find all the missing art. Moxie and the Art of Rule Breaking is an entertaining mystery for 10-14 that is clean, funny, and a real-girl story. Although the real-life theft has never been solved and the paintings have never been found, the listener just might just believe that Moxie and Ollie have made it happen.
