I read this book as a little girl - probably about 8 or 9 years old. Never has a book frightened me so much. I was a little klepto - who wasn't when they were nine? - and I was certain this was the life I would have if I didn't stop stealing my aunt's hair clips or my cousin's pennies. I should read it now as an adult to see if the suffocating fear still lingers.
Rather preachy account of a young woman's troubles with herself and with the law. I say recommended for young adults, but I think they'd have to be pretty gullible young adults; perhaps I'm jaded, but I saw every twist pages and pages before it actually occurred.
