Book Blitz

The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews

I’ve joined up to do this book blitz to tell you all about this intriguing book The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews. You might know that C.G. Drews blogs at that’s where I heard about her first book A Thousand Perfect Notes which I reviewed here in Febuary.
I immediately pre-ordered this new book which is out now. I haven’t read it yet but as soon as I do I’ll review it on here.
They’ve also given me access to a competition to win a signed and annotated copy of The Boy Who Steals Houses by C. G. Drews and an official art print.

The Boy Who Steals Houses Synopsis


Can two broken boys find their perfect home? 
Sam is only fifteen but he and his autistic older brother, Avery, have been abandoned by every relative he’s ever known. Now Sam’s trying to build a new life for them. He survives by breaking into empty houses when their owners are away, until one day he’s caught out when a family returns home. To his amazement this large, chaotic family takes him under their wing – each teenager assuming Sam is a friend of another sibling. Sam finds himself inextricably caught up in their life, and falling for the beautiful Moxie. 
But Sam has a secret, and his past is about to catch up with him.

My Thoughts

Both the blurb on the back on the book and the synopsis above have grabbed my attention. A girl “whose laugh is a burst of stardust” how amazing does that sound? I want to get to know this girl and the brothers Sam and Avery.

I like reading books about people trying to defy the odds and improve their lot in life. I want to find out about them and what will happen. I know from reading A Thousand Perfect Notes it will be a gorgeously written book and that it will be a riveting, enjoyable read.
