Catch Me If You Can

It's about a guy named Frank Abaganale. When he was 18 he moved out and he wanted to fly for for free. His Airport Pan Am is the closest airport so he gets a fraud ID and gets a Pan Am uniform. Then they ask for his ID up close so he ends up sweating like crazy. He passes the ID test so he gets a flight and he also likes to make fraud checks that are really not worth a penny. Figure out how long he gets without getting caught and going to prison.

There weren't any pictures but the story put a picture in your head. My favorite part was when he made many checks and it really didn't cost more than a penny. This book makes me wonder about how long he can go without getting caught.

My recommendation is for 5th and 6th graders because it has a pretty difficult text. If you like autobiographies and crime you might like this book. If you like bad guys being the main character then this is for sure your book.
