Don't Get Caught, by Kurt Dindan

This book is awesome.

Don't Get Caught, by Kurt Dindan is all the best heist stories rolled into one...only without the high-speed car chases. But there is a villain who is so evil and diabolical they would make even James Bond sweat. And there is a crime. 
And there is a twist. Oh yes, there is a twist! And it goes even deeper than even the most observent reader will suspect.

It all begins when Max Cobb and four other random students receive messages to meet at the watertower after dark. The messages are all signed "The Chaos Club" (the super secret organization that has been pulling epic shenanigans at their high school for decades). Their only instructions: "Tell No One" and "Don't Get Caught."

Well, it was a setup. Thus, "The Water Tower Five," encouraged by preacher's daughter Ellie, begin an elaborate revenge plot to get back at the mysterious club that got them in trouble. So the Five begin pulling pranks, each more complex and cruel than the next. They frame each one on the Chaos Club. Their hope is to force the club's members out of hiding and put an end to the infamous organization once and for all.

But there's more to it than just that. Someone's motives for revenge go past simply getting suspended for vandalizing the water tower. But who is the real villain here? Who is the real victim? 

What happens next... Well, you won't see it coming!

Don't Get Caught was funny and exciting and cringeworthy in all the best ways. If you want a quick, fun read that will keep you guessing until the last page, this one is for you! --AJB
