When Judge Carter gives Emma Greenwood one more chance by assigning community service, she thinks it's just one more card against her, cards like abandonment, foster care, and the thief trap she's in. Little does she know that there is more to her assignment that meets the eye, more like the mysterious old lady, Rose, who acts senile in front of her looming caregiver, but cleverly sane to Emma. As Rose's secrets unfold, so do Emma's. And now with friendship, love, and life on the line, Emma must decide if she is willing to be that Little Thief again.











Snippet:

My end of the conversation sounded like a bunch of rocks clanging in my head. I must have nodded a hundred times. I didn't really have time to say much more. Finally, she noticed me. "Oh stop the train. You've go the look."

Ok. So maybe I liked her better when she was rocket lips. "What look?"

"You like Jason." Her eyes narrowed becasue her smile was taking up all the room on her face.

"What?" I rolled my eyes.

"What's he like? What did he say? Did he kiss you?"

"Stop. He's a guy. He's nice and all, but we watched a movie together. So What?"

She slumped in her seat. "It's Robbie, isn't it?"

"Robbie?"

She turned to me. "Don't act stupid, Emma. You like Jason. I know you do. But you won't let go of Robbie because of what he did." (pg. 91

  1. Thanks for spotlighting me and Little Thief today. I hope you and your readers enjoy it. A little fact about this book--my friend was a counselor at a center/ home for troubled girls. Her approach to working with girls like Emma inspired the way I wrote about the Merideth Girls Home.
