Thief!




Thief! is a gripping futuristic novel about friendship, trust and the importance of forgiveness from the author of the bestselling Noughts and Crosses sequence.

You're the new girl in school. You're just trying to fit in - and it's not working. Then someone accuses you of theft, and you think things can't get any worse. Until you get caught in a freak storm . . .

The next thing you know, you're in the future. Being shot at for being out after curfew. You don't even recognise your hometown. And you're heading for a confrontation from your worst nightmare.

What if you could change the past to save the future?
