The Good Thief

by

Hannah Tinti

Seriously, take twelve year old  Ren(the main character) who lives at an orphanage run by monks, and is then sold to a man who claims to be his brother, they go on the lam and meet up with a few other roustabouts, gets into some scrapes(some rather serious)

He is forced into situations(thievery)of various sorts, that he cannot control for fear of being killed.

But…he has a good heart. At the end of the book, the only thing we are left wondering is what happens next.

perhaps time for a sequel.

Oh, did I forget to tell you Ren had a hand cut off as an infant…why?? guess you’ll have to read the book.
