THE BOY WHO STEALS HOUSES
published 4th of April, 2019 with Orchard / Hachette Children’s UK
Can two broken boys find their perfect home? A gorgeously told, heartfelt story.
Sam is only fifteen but he and his autistic older brother, Avery, have been abandoned by every relative he’s ever known. Now Sam’s trying to build a new life for them. He survives by breaking into empty houses when their owners are away, until one day he’s caught out when a family returns home. To his amazement this large, chaotic family takes him under their wing – each teenager assuming Sam is a friend of another sibling. Sam finds himself inextricably caught up in their life, and falling for the beautiful Moxie.
But Sam has a secret, and his past is about to catch up with him.
Perfect for fans of Jandy Nelson and Jennifer Niven.
