    One thought on “She Thief

    1. Donna

      While this book took me a little while to get through, and while it was pretty slow to get started, it had its moments that left me not wanting to put it down. There were moments where the fate of the kids was literally hanging in the balance and I wanted to find out what happened to them. There were also times where I wanted to say 'get the hell on with it.'I think one of the reasons I found it so hard to really connect with any of the characters and the plot was the dialect the story is writte [...]

    2. Hilary

      Mostly a coming-of-age story -- and one of betrayal. Not highly recommended -- by the time I was half-way through I was saying to myself, "Hurry up! Lets get this over with!" Also, this book is a re-issue of "Two Thieves" by the same author. The new title, "She Thief," is misleading: Baz is a lookout, not a thief. She's really more of an accessory to the crime. There's no "heat" where it should be. I kept expecting some romance between Baz and her partner, but it was never realized.

      I enjoyed this book very much. Baz is a likable, capable protagonist. I found her attitude and approach to obstacles refreshing. She spent no time complaining about her hard life and most of her time moving forward to try to solve whatever problems arose in front of her. The Barrio setting where most of the novel takes place was well developed in both a physical sense and in terms of the characters that populated it. The relationship dynamics between the main characters made sense and seemed hon [...]

      Not sure just what to say about this book. The idea and characters sounded interesting, however after reading the first few pages I knew it wasn't for me. I just didn't connect with the characters and often I found myself wondering when something was going to happen.I had to pick this one back up again a couple times and force myself to finish it. It just dragged out to much for me. The best part about the book was maybe the last 25-30 pages. I felt like things finally picked up a bit where I co [...]

      This book was intense!!! Baz and her friend Demi have spent pretty much there entire lives growing up together, with being theft as their only option of survival. With no parents to care for them, they both wound very different when being under a care of a young, hardened woman named Fay. Fay has given Baz, Demi, and a few other child thieves with what passes for shelter, and food. Fay could be cruel, but these children had no one else and they called their so they called that place their home. [...]

    8. Bailey Jensen

      I personally think that this book was very interesting. It drew me in when I read that this book was about a girl and a boy that is living a fast life of stealing for a harsh woman named Fay. At first in the book it is a little slow because the author takes up quite a few pages introducing the story and characters. Keep reading because you will not be able to put down the book once you realize that Baz is left alone to fend for herself because of Fay breaking under the pressure of the cops. In m [...]

      I hate writing negative reviews but I have to be honest and I honestly hated She Thief. There was nothing good about it and I can't say I recommend it to anyone.My worst complaint about She Thief is the plot. I was bored out of my mind for pretty much the whole book. It picked up some at the end but I still had trouble getting through it. I hoped it would get better and it did but I still did not like the book.Also, I was confused. I honestly could not tell if the book was set in the past, prese [...]

    11. Kristi

      A dystopian novel with a fagin-like character running a band of young pickpockets in an unnamed city. It's spanish in feel at times, but also somewhat has elements of US culture popping up. They drink Coke constantly. It almost felt like a brand name plug for money. Anyway, the story was decent enough, Baz is the only female thief in the crew and is one of the best. She's quiet. The same couldn't be said about Demi, who likes to brag a little too much, but they are the best of pals and Demi is o [...]

    13. Hayden

      3.5 stars. Terrible title, misleading cover (both protagonists are dark-skinned), but overall a pretty decent gritty adventure/grist novel. Set in a Latin American city, it follows Baz and Demi, teen thieves who have been "adopted" by Fay, a Fagin-like collector of orphaned children who she turns into pickpockets. When Fay is reunited with her birth son, she asks Baz and Demi to do one more big job for her--but it's unclear who's playing whom.

    14. Rheanna

      This book had so much awesome potential, but fell so flat. The writing is really bad. It's awkward and messy. The story is actually pretty boring. You just want it to get exciting, but it never does. The characters aren't likeable or relatable. Let's just say, I could definitely tell it was the author's first book.

    15. Gina

      Baz and her friend Demi are two street kids who work for Fay as thieves in a Latin American city barrio. They are just getting by when Fay comes up with a job that will enable them to retire, if they survive. This book offers a bleak, realistic portrayal of the plight of such children, who are subject to abuse and exploitation.

    16. Charles Benoit

      What a great, exciting and brilliantly written book. The characters are alive and the descriptions of the Barrio are more vivid than photographs. Baz, the She Thief of the title, is one of those characters that you'll remember long after you've forgotten the details of the plot. Can't recommend it enough.

    17. Lace

      this was a pretty good story, had a really good start to it, until the dreaded lull in the middle but overall not too bad! now i get that they live in the ghetto and talk ghetto-speak but it was hard to follow actually written like that i had to go back and slowly read and calculate all the double-negatives to get what they say, hey!

      "This is one of those rare items that is all action, full of narrow escapes and scenic chases, but also all heart. While also being a terrific, brainy suspense novel, all twists and strategy."Full review on Pink Me: pinkme.typepad/pink-me/201

    19. Zsophia

      I really didn't like the dialect in this book but the storyline was okay. I usually take 2 days to read a book but this one took me a while because the story didn't really catch my attention, the author took long of a time to get to a point.

    20. Maxine

      READ THE FOLLOWING:This is a pre-advanced copy, the book that is made before the actual book. It DOES NOT have the same cover but is in paper back. Everything is the same compaired to the real book.

    21. Chloe

      This ended up being a lot better than originally thought when I first started it. It was full of action, fast paced, and I adored the main characters. The backstories were incredible and the plot was amazing. All in all, a very entertaining and educational read.

    22. Micaela

      You know it's bad when you can't even finish the first page.Horrible writing. Horrible, weird 3rd person, present tense.Ew

    23. Abby

      Eh, I didn't like it, didn't hate it. Kind of a boring read until you got up to about 2/3 of the way unto it. Not really worth the time.
