The Little Old Lady Behaving Badly by Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg

They are a group of comfortable pensioners looking for ways to help those less fortunate.  The worst part is that they aren't doing it traditionally.  They prefer to do it like Robin Hood...

HarperCollins and Edelweiss gave me permission to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 26th.

They start with robbing a bank with a garbage truck.  She gets building plans, looks for the parts that aren't upgraded yet, and sucks the money out of the vault.  Then things go south.  No matter how bad things go, they look for a way around it and don't give up.

They get even more determined to right wrongs and start stealing from those who live on those proceeds.  They even get into hacking.  Everybody wants them but they are not going to give up.  Even a very determined retired cop has met his challenge.  What's most important, justice or love?

Some of the story is a bit silly and overboard but I could relate to how people think about old people.  I'm slowly turning into one but I'm done yet.  Neither is this group...
