When Judge Carter gives Emma Greenwood one more chance by assigning community service, she thinks it’s just one more card against her, cards like abandonment, foster care, and the thief trap she’s in. Little does she know that there is more to her assignment that meets the eye, more like the mysterious old lady, Rose, who acts senile in front of her looming caregiver, but cleverly sane to Emma. As Rose’s secrets unfold, so do Emma’s. And now with friendship, love, and life on the line, Emma must decide if she is willing to be that Little Thief again.
We all piled into the theater, Jahvonee made sure he was next to
Tasha. She giggled while he compared the weather in Virginia to that in
the islands. I took and end seat. Jason filled the seat next to
me. Why did he ave to smell so amazing? He nudged me with his
elbow. “You want some popcorn?”
“No. I’m ok. But I think I’ll go grab a Sprite.” I
started to stand. He grabbed my hand and helped me up. Why did his
hand have to feel so amazing?
He didn’t let go of my hand as we walked to concessions. “How
come I haven’t seen you around here before?”
“We don’t come over here much.”
“Yeah. Most people just go to the big cinemas.” He
naviaged me through incoming viewers by pulling me closer to him. Why didn he
have to make me feel so amazing?
I stopped just outside the door. “I hope you take this as a
compliment, because there aren’t many people I have ever said this to, but I’m
not going to lie to you.” (pg 87)
