Moving to a new high school sucks. Especially a rich-kid private school. With uniforms. But nothing is worse than finding out the first girl you meet is dead. And a klepto. 

No one can see or hear Kimberlee except Jeff, so--in hopes of bringing an end to the snarkiest haunting in history--he agrees to help her complete her "unfinished business." But when the enmity between Kimberlee and Jeff's new crush, Sera, manages to continue posthumously, Jeff wonders if he's made the right choice.

Clash meets sass in this uproarious modern-day retelling of Baroness Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Life After Theft is an engrossing novel with an excellent plot and a mind-blowing ending! I couldn't put it down!

I was so, so excited when I received this novel. I had super high expectations (since this was one of my biggest anticipations of 2013), and it totally met all of my expectations. I can't stop gushing over how much this novel was amazing. I absolutely loved reading every single second of Life After Theft, and I applaud Aprilynne Pike for making such a fun and exciting novel!

The characters were brilliant. Being inside Jeff's hand was awesome: he's definitely a great protagonist. He was smart, funny, and someone I would want as a best friend. Kimberlee... oh my gosh, how I loved Kimberlee. I felt sorry for her during the entire course of the book, but then again, she was so sassy and quick-to-remark, I fell in love with her hard.

Pike's writing style flowed off the page so easily. Going on this voyage with our characters was excellent, and Aprilynne Pike created such a captivating world, I could never break myself away from Life After Theft. Her writing style felt authentic and alive; I felt like these characters were real. She simply did a fantastic job with this novel.

The plot was so different and so unique. I push this onto everybody in you're looking for something original and extraordinary. Life After Theft is such a beautiful and heart-shattering novel. Words can't begin to describe how much you need this novel in your bookish life.

Overall, Life After Theft is another stunning novel from a masterful author. Needing something epic and wonderful in your reading life? Life After Theft is the perfect book!

  1. I can't wait to read this one! I've been looking forward to it for a while. Glad you liked it!!

  2. I'm super glad you loved this one, Brad! I've read mixed reviews on it so when I wanted to pick it up, I wasn't sure anymore. Good thing I didn't picked it up before, because now it's only $1.99 on my Nook lol! I'm really glad to hear that it is original and has a unique plot. The characters all sounds lovely. I have a feeling this book will be a bit witty. Great review!
