#BookTour: Diary of a Teenage Jewel Thief by @prosyrosiem @YaReads #Giveaway

 
Most sixteen-year-olds shouldn’t know where museums keep their rarest jewels (the basement) and they really shouldn’t know that vans make the worst getaway cars. But for Marisol Flores, a life of jewel thievery is a birthright handed down from generation to generation, even if she didn’t ask for it. So when a rival thief targets Mari and her mother, Mari’s more than happy to flee to the anonymity of bustling New York City.

Blending in is a dream come true for Mari, but keeping her former thieving ways a secret gets way more complicated when handsome Will Campbell sets his sights on her. She can’t help but like his terrible puns and charming grin…but when her past catches up with her, it’s not only her life—and her anonymity—that’s at stake.

Will could be the next target.
 





 Rosie Somers is a beach-going book addict who’s been crafting stories since before she learned her ABCs. When she’s not busy trying to bring the characters in her head to life on paper, she can be found volunteering with local animal rescues, crocheting funky hats for her friends, or eating herself into the poorhouse at Chipotle. Her fondest dream is to one day own a goat.

This was a very sweet book that pulled me in early on. I really loved Mari and her family. I really liked how this story puts others of its kind on its head. In most cases, this story would go the other way. It would be a normal teen getting sucked into the world of jewel stealing and in this one, we go the other way with a jewel thief being hidden out as a normal teen for the first time in her life.  That made this book set apart from others and it made it awesome. 

This one has some great action and wonderful pacing and I couldn't put it down. I do wish that it would have been a little longer. But I could see this becoming a great series as well set up wonderfully for a really interesting tv show.

Paragraph Teaser Excerpts from DIARY OF A TEENAGE JEWEL THIEF by Rosie Somers

1.

When his tongue darts out to wet his lips, I unconsciously
mirror the action, and he sucks in a deep breath in response.
A little thrill shoots through me at the realization that he’s
reacting to me that way because he wants to kiss me. And
if I’m honest with myself, I want to kiss him. I can almost
feel his lips pressing against mine. Every fiber of my being is
caught in his gravitational pull, aching to be near him.

2. 

Heat surges through me. I lean into Will, memorizing
the feel of his body leveled against mine. The life of a thief
is a solitary one; I’ve never been this close to a guy before,
and the situation is made all the more complicated by the
strength of my attraction to him.

3.

My phone rings. The tiny chime splits the silence and
cuts through the romance of the moment, but I don’t move
to answer it. Maybe if I stay just like I am, he’ll still kiss me.
“You gonna answer that?” Will’s voice is a breathy
almost-whisper against my lips.
“No.”
