12- year-old Ren has only one hand and is an orphan in New England. The only clue to his background were the clothes he was wrapped in when he was found as a baby, they were embroidered with the initials R.E.N. thus his name. Hmm, mystery.
He hooks up with this kid Benjamin who claims to be his long lost brother, when really he is just a pathological liar. Takes Ren under his wing, you can just imagine what a role model. Ha, he gets our boy Ren involved in the lifestyle of law breaking and thievery. Curious? I thought so.
Author, Hannah Tinti writes a bit old fashioned (in a good way). "The Good Thief" is her first novel and is definitely worth the read.
