Zoey Lyndon and the Sticky Finger Bandit is a fun-filled story for preteens by Micheal Anderson. On top of being a model student, fourth-grader Zoey loves to dance and have fun with her friends. But Zoey's happy life has one constant annoyance in the form of Trudy Jacobs, who uses every opportunity to embarrass Zoey in front of her classmates. Moreover, stuff belonging to Zoey and her classmates keeps disappearing from Mrs. Pennington's class, which Zoey blames on the sticky finger bandit. Meanwhile, Zoey's older sister Jasmine has a secret admirer. As the day of the Briar Ridge Elementary annual talent show comes closer, Zoey and her friends decide to train and seek direction from her mother, who used to be a member of her university dance team. Will the girls win the competition?

Full of heart, humor, and a whole lot of fun, Zoey and the Sticky Finger Bandit is a delightful tale that will appeal to children and young adults alike. Author Micheal Anderson's colorful and vibrant characters, alongside the sharp-witted humor sprinkled throughout the pages, make the book a joyful ride you don't want to get off. Zoey is a high-spirited young girl who is full of passion in every single thing she sets out to do. Her relationships with her friends and family form the bedrock of the narrative. I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes involving Zoey and her best friend Tommi, alongside her dynamic with her older sister Jasmine. I recommend Zoey and the Sticky Finger Bandit to kids of all ages.
