Martijn Maria | 3 comments A mother is caught for shoplifting and needs to pay the shop for expenses, she sends her children to gather the money before the shop closes, if they won't succeed she will be send to the police - which automatically leads to youth Services and a bunch of other problems they don't want to face.

Any book with some familiar I'm interested to.
Please let me know, thank you.

Martijn. what was the mother shoplifting? Where is the father? What are their jobs/skills?

What is the story's time period and location - country, region, big city/small town?

Martijn Maria | 3 comments Story time period is within present time, the mother was shoplifting, the father has no picture in the story - she's divorced / operated, she is a single mom, without money - I don;t think she has a job, if so it would be in a factory or cleaning. It takes place in a small city.
