DANGER: ROBBERY IN PROGRESS
Police are uncertain how many hostages are being held.

It’s an ordinary Saturday night for the teens working at Burger Heaven—until, suddenly, guns are drawn and threats made. Jordan’s just working here part-time, after school, but she’s suddenly put in charge when the manager has to leave. Joe has never even gotten so much as an after-school detention. So how is it that this Saturday night, he’s at Burger Heaven, waving a loaded gun, yelling at the employees to get down on the floor NOW! Dylan has always succeeded at his twisted plans—until this Saturday, this robbery, where everything has gone wrong. And now, surrounded by police outside, Dylan’s life will never be the same—and neither will the lives of his hostages.

Praise for Holdup

“The story is compelling and the characters are well drawn, giving the book wide appeal for a general audience.”—School Library Journal

“Perhaps most successful is the way Fields’ collage of distinct personalities shows how an after-school job, whether or not crisis strikes, creates an unlikely, fleeting community among employees who wouldn’t normally connect.”—Booklist

“The notion of one small decision’s leading to a life-changing experience is an intriguing one, however, and there’s still a pulpy kick in experiencing the immediacy of a crime from one’s safe armchair.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Ms. Fields loves doing author visits, and has been invited to schools throughout the US, as well as Morocco and Japan. Her newest book, My Father’s Son, is available now from Roaring Brook Press. The idea for the setting of Holdup came after hearing many of her students talk about working in fast-food restaurants.
