Catch Me If You Can: The True Story of a Real Fake by Frank W. Abagnale

Pan Am pilot, Columbia University pediatrician, Harvard Law School graduate, university professor - or 17-year-old high school dropout from New York with a penchant for the sweet life and a brilliant brain for the art of the steal?  Highly intelligent, elusive, charismatic, dapper ladies' man Frank Abagnale is sort of like James Bond - if 007 was funding his international escapades with swindles, cons, and counterfeit checks.  Follow Frank on his crime caper across the United States and Europe - and find out why you never ever ever want to get caught committing a crime in France - and check out Catch Me If You Can @the library!  And, when you're done reading the book, watch Leonardo diCaprio impersonate Frank in the movie.
