Jane is ready for a fantastic summer. In fact, she's pretty sure the universe owes her one. This past winter, Jane was held at knifepoint during an armed robbery and the spectre of that night still haunts her. A summer romance with one of the town bad boys - sexy Handel Davies, who takes her breath away and makes her feel like a bolder version of herself seems like the universe's way of paying her back. But bad boys always have secrets, and Handel's secret just might shatter Jane completely. This suspense novel marries psychological thriller with summer romance and is perfect for teen fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Advance praise for THE TENDERNESS OF THIEVES:
"The meandering, dreamy language grass is 'tender with the newness of life, ' and Jane's desire makes her heart 'flutter like the wings of a hummingbird' is perfect for the hazy, hot summer days depicted."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Full of passion, tenderness, and fun...readers will enjoy the chemistry that simmers between Jane and Handel....For a summer romance with a twist, Freitas delivers."--"Publishers Weekly"
"Both the romance and mystery are skillfully told, with smooth, believable dialogue and well-developedcharacters....The surprise ending is likely to spark discussion, especially for those with strongfeminist viewpoints."--"Booklist"
"Freitas mixes sweet and sour in a way that illustrates the messiness of life....This is recommended for mature readers, who will find that the love story resonates well after the book is finished."--"VOYA"
