Katrina says "The Readymade Thief is a novel that grabbed me in the first chapter and didn't let go, even after I finished. Teenage Lee's life has not been an easy one. Her dad, a musician, leaves when she is young and she starts stealing things. After she gets sent to juvie for taking the blame for a friend, she escapes and is on the run. But she's not just running from the police, there is a secret society that is willing to do seemingly anything to get to her. Her experience at the Crystal Castle, on the outside a place for homeless kids to stay, leads her to believe there are more nefarious things going on around her. Mysterious and thrilling, Rose ties together seemingly unrelated themes: art history, drug abuse, secret societies, and urban exploration; and makes a story that is hard to describe but even harder to put down."
