Most sixteen-year-olds shouldn’t know where museums keep their rarest jewels (the basement) and they really shouldn’t know that vans make the worst getaway cars. But for Marisol Flores, a life of jewel thievery is a birthright handed down from generation to generation, even if she didn’t ask for it. So when a rival thief targets Mari and her mother, Mari’s more than happy to flee to the anonymity of bustling New York City.
Blending in is a dream come true for Mari, but keeping her former thieving ways a secret gets way more complicated when handsome Will Campbell sets his sights on her. She can’t help but like his terrible puns and charming grin…but when her past catches up with her, it’s not only her life—and her anonymity—that’s at stake.
Will could be the next target.
Diary of a Teenage Jewel Thief by Rosie Somers is a pretty fast paced story.
The story starts out with Marisol a sixteen-year-old who was raised in a family of jewel thievery. Her and her mother move to New York City to hide from another thief. Marisol just wants to blend in at her new high school.
I really felt that the character Marisol was awesome, I loved her diary entries and also her story. Her point of view. Of course, she meets a guy at school, very typical of a girl in high school.
I like the development of Marisol and Will, her new “boy” friend. I love the chemistry and also the story is a clean story just a cute sweet start of a romance.
Since this story is based on Marisol diary, her mother and other characters weren’t developed but I was given enough information to make this an interesting journey.
I felt this story is a fast-paced action adventure and a great ending. I thought this was a really good book to read and like that it is clean story.
Thanks to the Author Rosie Somers and to YA Reads for providing me a copy of this book. My review is all my own and I did enjoy reading this book.
I am giving this book 4 stars. Awesome book if you are looking for an adventure that is clean and still a good story.
