The Scam List is a work of fiction in the contemporary drama and comedic sub-genres and was written for young adult audiences by author Kurt Dinan. In this laugh a minute drama which also contains some truly heartfelt moments, we meet protagonist Boone McReedy – an unlikely hero and teenage conman extraordinaire. But when Boone gets caught in a con of his own and loses $15,000 of his mom’s money, the stakes are suddenly high and the family business is in jeopardy. Boone will have to turn to his ex-girlfriend, the fierce and vivacious Darby West, in order to con his way back to normal life, and that’s if he and Darby can survive one another’s company.
Author Kurt Dinan takes the contemporary teen drama in a really exciting new direction with this realistic and comedic slice of life. One of the things which impressed me the most during the reading experience is the presentation of dialogue, which felt distinctly teenage but not comically overdone. Boone is a ready-to-go hero with the gift of the gab, but his youth and naivety still trip him up here and there, making him an accessible and relatable protagonist from whom we can learn a lot about resourcefulness and humility. Darby makes for a feisty partner in crime with a lot of empowering skills to offer, and their pairing delivers wit and humor throughout the well-paced plot. Overall, I would highly recommend The Scam List to both young adult and adult readers alike for fast-paced fun and high stakes humor.
