The Lovereading4Kids comment

A terrific, nail-biting thriller, Two Good Thieves captures the harsh world of a gang of child pickpockets surviving on the streets of a South American city and the terrible danger that they put themselves in when they make one outrageous heist. As the tension mounts the delicate balance of relationships between the children and their need for each other for survival is poignantly told. One of the best debuts we’ve read in a while.


Two Good Thieves by Daniel Finn

In the searing heat of an unnamed South American city, a gang of child-thieves runs wild. Demi has the gift of speed - he can pick a pocket and be gone before his victim has even noticed he was there. Baz is his lookout - no one sees her unless she wants them to. But one day they steal a priceless jewel - and make a very dangerous enemy.
