Lucinda Purefoy is young, well-connected and wants to 'pay her debt to society'. To that end she joins SCRAP (Social Carers, Reformers and Praeceptors), an organization that allows girls like Lucy to mentor ex-cons.

Which is how Lucy comes to meet a career burglar called Terry, on the street outside Wormwood Scrubs. Though their initial meeting is inauspicious - it ends in a row in Burger King - the pair gradually begin to overcome their differences. However, it is soon unclear who is proving to be a greater influence on whom - angelic Lucy or rough-and-ready Terry . . .

The premise is good. The complete reversal is original and quite funny, honestly. The thing gets out of hands when with each chapter we have a review of what we knew already. This gets tiresome after a while. I still can't see why after the split between Lucy and Terry she doesn't wake up and realize that all her time in prison is for nothing. And the happy ending... Well.

Cleverly written but I did not enjoy the format... he thinks/ she thinks and the sarcasm about the inadequate prison system is too sad to laugh at.

I enjoyed this humorous, satirical novel. It is a light novel, but still interesting nonetheless. The author makes fun of crime, religion,etc.
A fun read!
