Point Of View:
In this book, the point of view is in first person, so it is in Sammy's point of view.
Officer Gil Borsch
He is the police Sammy always gets in trouble with.
The theme of this story is never give up even though others turn you down. An example is when Sammy cracks a safe, the owner of the safe didn't think she could. I can relate to this theme because when I do my homework, I do it slow. So, my parents never think I can get my homework done in time for school the next day.
