About The Book:
Written by Elizabeth Scott Published Year 2008
My name is Danielle. I'm eighteen. I've been stealing things for as long as I can remember.
Dani has been trained as a thief by the best - her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connections, real friends - a real life.
In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She's making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the real Dani - because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they've targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she's always known - or the one she's always wanted.
I really enjoyed reading it, the story was interesting; seems different from other YA books but not really; self-destructive parents; Ive seen in other books and the way the story finishes in it self without the protagonist doing much of anything but brooding and then everything sets in right definitely a YA formula. It fell short; how about her friendship with Allison and her mothers condition; being sick and I don't mean in the physical sense. But regardless of it it is still one of the most enjoyable books I've read.
