Can’t Wait Wednesday – IMMORAL CODE by Lillian Clark


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is IMMORAL CODE by Lillian Clark.  As soon as I read that this story is like Ocean’s 8 meets The Breakfast, I knew I had to read it.  It also just cracked me up that their big heist is to steal money for college.  I think this is going to be a hilarious read!


IMMORAL CODE by Lillian Clark

Publication Date: February 19, 2019



From Goodreads

Ocean’s 8 meets The Breakfast Club in this fast-paced, multi-perspective story about five teens determined to hack into one billionaire absentee father’s company to steal tuition money.

For Nari, aka Narioka Diane, aka hacker digital alter ego “d0l0s,” it’s college and then a career at “one of the big ones,” like Google or Apple. Keagan, her sweet, sensitive boyfriend, is happy to follow her wherever she may lead. Reese is an ace/aro visual artist with plans to travel the world. Santiago is off to Stanford on a diving scholarship, with very real Olympic hopes. And Bellamy? Physics genius Bellamy is admitted to MIT–but the student loan she’d been counting on is denied when it turns out her estranged father–one Robert Foster–is loaded.

Nari isn’t about to let her friend’s dreams be squashed by a deadbeat billionaire, so she hatches a plan to steal just enough from Foster to allow Bellamy to achieve her goals. Fast-paced and banter-filled, Lillian Clark’s debut is a hilarious and thought-provoking Robin Hood story for the 21st century.

    This book was added to my TBR right after I read the first line. Hello! Two great movie references, and if the book lives up to that description, no doubt I will love it.

    You had me at The Breakfast Club.🥰 That movie is one of my favorites and all of the Ocean franchises movies are runners-ups. This book is definitely on my TBR, I haven’t seen it around and I’m so glad you picked this one to showcase.
    I hope you have a wonderful week ahead and Happy Holiday Season.
    Always, Helena

    Ooh this sounds really good. And I always hated that financial aid is based around your parent’s income, like every parent can or wants to pay for your college. I know mine couldn’t.

      Right? Mine couldn’t afford to either and I ended up having to work all year round while going to college because I wasn’t awarded enough financial aid to cover everything.
