My name is Danielle. I'm eighteen. I've been stealing things for as long as I can remember.
Dani has been trained as a thief by the best—her mother. Together, they move from town to town, targeting wealthy homes and making a living by stealing antique silver. They never stay in one place long enough to make real connections, real friends—a real life.
In the beach town of Heaven, though, everything changes. For the first time, Dani starts to feel at home. She's making friends and has even met a guy. But these people can never know the real Dani—because of who she is. When it turns out that her new friend lives in the house they've targeted for their next job and the cute guy is a cop, Dani must question where her loyalties lie: with the life she's always known—or the one she's always wanted.
Stealing Heaven was amazing! I loved basically everything about it. The only parts I disliked about it was the ending and how she didn't get the chance to make up with Allison. But under the circumstances I guess this was somewhat unrealistic. Besides this I loved the characters of this story, especially Greg who sounds like the greatest guy ever! I also loved how Dani handles herself and how she wants more from life than just stealing other peoples possessions.
Overall, Stealing Heaven is a good book to read. I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed reading Lock and Key. Somehow I found these two books similar in their stories of girls finding their way who came from terrible homes.
