The Fearless Five

Anna McPartlin Bannie McPartlin

"A bighearted, madcap heist story from a bestselling and much-loved Irish novelist"

'Funny and sad and wonderful … I adored every last word' Derek Landy, author of SKULLDUGGERY PLEASANT

We didn't know what we were doing. We had no idea what we were up against. And we made a really big mess… And it was the saddest, scariest, weirdest, time in my life but it was also the best fun I ever had.
And it started here…

Jeremy, Johnny J, Walker, Sumo and Charlie are about to have the summer of their lives. They've all just finished primary school and are looking forward to weeks of holiday freedom before they head off to their new schools. But they soon realise it's not all going to be riding their bikes, making rope swings in the woods and climbing trees. Johnny's mum is ill, really ill – and Jeremy decides there is only one way to save her. A way that might just involve a robbery … And by the end of it all – or perhaps somewhere in the middle – they will be The Fearless Five. And this will be a summer they will never, ever forget …

More about the book

Bannie McPartlin lives in an ancient city once inhabited by Vikings and now Dublin people. She's married to Donal, a drummer, guitar and piano player. He's a man of many noises. Together they have four dogs: Trudy, Bonzo, Misty and Doris. Bannie has written fiction for adults for over ten years under the name Anna, but the kids she loves in her life call her Bannie so the name change is for them.
