Not even Jack knew her secret. It had been Jack who had taught her how to steal, and right lucky it was for him that she’d proved a natural-born pickpocket. She’d learned fast to develop and hone her skills. She was agile, her fingers small and quick, her mind alert. She hated doing it, but she didn’t tell Jack.

The story started out well. A young lady runs away from her guardian to escape an unwanted marriage. She ends up in the slums of London, disguised as a boy and part of a gang. A little farfetched but entertaining. The story goes downhill when an arrogant, controlling and violent "hero" saves her and discovers she's an 18 year old girl. He seems to bring out the worst in her. She's stubborn, fast to judge, jumps to conclusions and is immature. Although if her uncle and the hero ever took the time to be honest with her, some of the negative emotions might have been avoided.

Very enjoyable. Story flows, characters are formed. Professional. Not a lot of fill in foolishness with descriptions just to add words.
