Sixteen-year-old Avvy Go straddles the line—the line between the immigrant neighborhood were she lives and works and the established neighborhood where she attends high school, the line between right and wrong, and the line between telling secrets and keeping them. Set in an urban Chinatown neighborhood, Thief Girl is a frank look at the challenges faced by one teen caught between two worlds.
