by Malorie Blackman

Goodreads synopsis:
You're the new girl in school. You're just trying to fit in - and it's not working. Then someone accuses you of theft, and you think things can't get any worse. Until you get caught in a freak storm . . .

The next thing you know, you're in the future. Being shot at for being out after curfew. You don't even recognise your hometown. And you're heading for a confrontation from your worst nightmare.

What if you could change the past to save the future?

I read Malorie Blackman for the first time when I was about 12 or 13 years old, when we were told to read Noughts & Crosses at school. Ever since then, I've loved her writing, but for whatever reason, I never got around to reading all of her older books. This must change!
Thief is one of the older books of hers that I haven't read, and it's one that I really want to read. I keep seeing it at work and thinking I should pick it up. I think I might just have to cave next time I'm there!
Are you a fan of Malorie's? What's your favourite of her books? Let us know in the comments below.

I have yet to read anything from the author but I look forward to her books. Especially Naughts and Crosses.

Hope you get the book soon!
