Robin in the Hood by Diane J. Reed is about Robin, a girl who grew up in a privileged life and her adventures when all those benefits were taken away from her. Robin grew up rich and lonely but when her father had a stroke and she discovered that they were actually broke everything changed. She is poor but no longer lonely, with her new set of family. This is based loosely on Robin Hood and his tales of thievery. Robin along with Creek steals money from bad people to give to those in need in their trailer park. In the end, she figures out that she does not need all the riches in the world to be happy.

I loved this book. The characters are quirky, fun and just really cute. I especially loved the TNT twins, imagining them in their boulder costumes. If this book is made into a movie I would definitely watch it. I loved all the thoughts that go on in Robin’s mind. It really showed how her character evolved from a spoiled, rich brat to a self actualized person. I also loved Creek: his loving and caring character. The way he protects everyone makes him a real hero, even if he does it in a not so legal way. Everyone else is also adorable, Grandma Tinker and her crystal ball, Colonel and his fleet of geese, the TNT twins and all their fireworks and everyone else. Overall the story is great and the characters are well-developed.
