Description of this Book

It landed right at my feet, almost as if it had been aimed at me. I knew August was right. I shouldn't pick it up. But I did. Even though I was scared, for some reason I just had to. It was as if I already knew what was inside ... It's not every day that ten thousand dollars lands at your feet. Miles and August are mucking around on their bikes after school when a bank robber's proceeds are flung from a speeding car's window, with the police in hot pursuit. Miles knows what he must do with the money - he must hand it in, right? But he and Dad could really use ten thousand bucks right now - they could move out of Gran's place, maybe even buy a house of their own ...
