It’s tough being famous. No honestly. First of all, when you’re still a kid there’s no photo shoots or stretch limos with DVD players in. And second, when you’re famous for being a thief then people can be mean about it. People at school have been reading the book that Elen Caldecott wrote about us. Some people said today that we were just common criminals. Not mentioning any names, Maya Toyne.
What about Robin Hood? He was a criminal and everyone thinks he was brilliant. Ben – who’s looking over my shoulder and who should Mind His Own Business – says that Robin Hood was an outlaw. Which apparently means outside the law. Which means he wasn’t really breaking the law because he was outside it. Or something.
Anyway, some people, like Maya Toyne, don’t know what they’re talking about.
