The Good Thief

In The Good Thief, Hannah Tinti creates a bizarre, yet believable world that takes the reader on a rollercoaster thrill ride from the very beginning. Ren, a 12 year-old boy, who has only one hand, has known only one world--St. Anthony's Orphanage where he was left at an early age. An accomplished thief, he often spends time praying to St. Anthony for items that he has in his possession. When anyone comes to the orphanage to adopt, Ren is always overlooked, until one fateful day. Benjamin Nab, con-man extraordinaire, arrives one day and claims to be Ren's long-lost brother. Ren's dream of a safe, warm, loving home with a mother and father is quickly shattered as Ben plunges Ren into a life of danger and adventure. Filled with a cast of complex, quirky, and engaging characters, The Good Thief is sure to take the reader on a journey they will never forget as Ren struggles to discover who he really is and what happened to his hand. Jump in and hang on--you won't regret the ride.
