The Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner is one of the best YA novels of 2010. Check out Kidzworlds review!

Title: The Museum of Thieves
Authors: Lian Tanner
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


Set somewhere in the distant future, Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner takes places in the city of Jewel, an ironically corrupt society where children are kept on short leashes...literally. The city is run by a Grand Protector and a series of Blessed Guardians, whose names suggest that they are kind and gentle souls. But everything in this clever book is the exact opposite of what it seems. The Blessed Guardians enforce cruel laws and believe that children should be chained to the authorities at all times. Care is a jail for children. And the citizens have been brainwashed into thinking that all children must never be exposed to the dangers of the world.

Cut and Run

The best day of 12 year old Goldie Roth’s life was upon her. She would be released from the guardchain that has been secured to her wrist all her life. She would be free to walk the streets alone for the first time. But just before her ceremonial release, the foul man called the Fugleman halted the proceedings with news of the unthinkable—murder. Now Goldie is faced with a choice: remain tied to her childhood, or cut the chain herself and run. Fuelled by desperation, she cuts and runs.


The Museum of Dunt

Goldie flees through the dark and daunting streets, and immediately regrets her decision. She knows she is being followed. Or is she being led somewhere? She winds up at the mysterious Museum of Dunt, where the rooms are ever-changing, and the staff is an odd group of outcasts. Goldie seeks refuge from the Blessed Guardians who are pursuing her, and learns the ways of the Museum. But there is trouble brewing beneath the surface, trouble that could destroy the entire city.


The Bottom Line

The Museum of Thieves by Lian Tanner is the first book in the Keepers Trilogy. The story is so cleverly crafted and well-written that any YA reader would have trouble putting it down. The Museum of Thieves is one of the best YA books of 2010.
