Book Review: Little Thieves
By: Haley Troha
Little Thieves, by Margaret Owen, is an amazing new fantasy novel full of plot twists and beautifully written characters. Little Thieves follows the story of Vanja Schmidt, an ex-maid and petty thief who currently lives the life of a princess. She just has one tiny problem - her godmothers, Death and Fortune, expect her to spend a lifetime in servitude to them as payment for their care, a problem that she plans to solve by amassing enough money to flee the country, which quickly proves to be an issue. Why? Because now she has to get a junior detective off her tail and foil the plans of her sinister betrothed, all while under a possibly deadly curse. This book is fun and creative, with lots of new material and great characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy or likes young adult fiction.
